  Future Plans and Goals:
I have known that I wanted nothing more than to be a professional race car driver since my first kart race at the very young age of five years old. Over the years I have had many incredible experiences in many different forms of motor sports. I have always been the type of driver that would race anything where there was competition, and succeed. In the karting community I have gotten the chance to work with and race against many incredible racing drivers including Dan Wheldon, Scott Speed, James Hinchcliffe, and many others. Before his tragic accident, Dan Wheldon was an amazing asset to me while I was in the beginning stages of building my career, and he even introduced me as a future Indy 500 winner at his victory after winning his second Indy 500. Now Scott Speed has taken me under his wing after we met at a karting race last year. Scott was kind enough to introduce me to the right people and create the opportunity to test in a Global Rally Cross Lites car earlier this year. The series manager was incredibly impressed with how well I did at the test. A Red Bull driver that ran a full season last year was at the test as a benchmark, and by my second session on track, I was had met and surpassed his pace. Now I have the opportunity to race in the full 2014 GRC Lites season.

Along with the GRC series, in 2014 I always plan to compete in multiple Super Late Model races regionally in Florida, and possibly making the trip to stock car racing's heart in North Carolina. The stock car is owned by myself with support from Ocala Gran Prix and Dave Pletcher Racing. To fill in my schedule for the year I will continue racing karts with Ocala Gran Prix in both pro shifter kart racing and other classes.
