| Career Summary|
|I've always wanted to get into racing from a very young age, and never really found a way until my friends got me involved in racing hot rod lawn mowers with the NLMRA. I raced them 2010-2013, racking up about 15 wins, and capped it off with a Points Championship in 2012, my last full season. In 2014 I jumped into a Sport Compact at JMS for a few races before mechanical issues sidelined me for the rest of the season. In 2015 I came back with a new car and finished 2nd in Championship Points on my way to claiming Rookie of the Year. In 2016 I raced full time at JMS while competing part time at other local tracks and finished 3rd in the IMCA National Sport Compact Rookie standings and claimed the JMS Track Championship by winning 7 out of 13 races.|
| Racing Goals|
|Be smooth, be consistent, load the car in one piece at the end of the night, and most importantly... HAVE FUN!|
| Other Interesting Team Information|
|I changed my number a few years ago to 13 as a tribute to my racing hero, Dale Earnhardt. But after more bad luck then good, I decided to change my number to 7d7 because it was double the luck of #7 and the "D" was obviously for my name, and the fact that it made the number unique in its own right (I've yet to see anyone else that has it as their number).|
