How long have you been riding and when did you start racing – I have been riding since I was 5 years old, so roughly 4 years
Favorite place to ride – my favorite place to ride is Sunshine MX in Florida, Rob always provides a great facility for us to ride during the winter months.
What accomplishment are you most proud of – Honestly, my biggest accomplishment is Testing within the top 5% of Ohio for the 2nd grade. Im not only decent on a dirt bike but pretty smart too. My parents always tell me how important school is so I think on top of training, traveling, and yes missing school. Its always huge to have such good grades and be active in my community.
But if we are talking dirt bike accomplishments, Still hold winning the KTM junior challenge in epic style one of my proud moments in racing.
What is your favorite non-moto activity - I love to play basketball when I am not riding. & beach vacations with mom and dad.
Goals for 2022 and beyond – Goals for 2022 is to keep grinding, to get better on my 65 and qualify for Loretta's in both 65 7-9 classes.
Who do you look up to and why - Mom & dad, They have given up so much to make it possible for me to train, have new bikes, and travel across the US. Even on my bad days they still support me to make me better on and off the track.
Motto you live by - Not a motto but - to always have fun.
