My mom bought my dad a TMaxx for his birthday. I wanted to try it and loved it. I was five years old and my parents then bought me a Tamiya Blitzer Beetle and I drove almost every day when I got out of school. I hope to have many more years racing and I intend to be a mechanical engineer when I stop racing so I can design cars and stay in the industry.

Favourite track: Nitro-Fear Farm & Electric-AMS Raceway (home track)
Favourite Event: Nitro Challenge
Best RC moment: 1st National Win 2005, Junior Stock Buggy, SRS-Arizona
Goals: Race as long as I can, then become a mechanical engineer
Best RC buddies: The whole TLR team and I really like hanging out with everyone at the track. I’ve been able to meet so many great people racing!
