I began riding motorcycles at a young age in the form of a Honda Z50.  My riding was only casual and really didn't become serious until a used set of leathers led to my first Tony's Track Day in 2012.  After a few years of instructed track time I was convinced that racing was something I wanted to try my hand at, too.  Track time at TTD put me ahead of the curve and I found some success at the local Loudon track relatively quickly.  Firefighting in southern RI and wrenching on cars takes up my time not spent on a motorcycle.  I look forward to improving my abilities as a teacher and rider in the Control Rider position.
