I grew up in Minnesota and moved to Iowa after college. I think I was trying to find warmer weather, but didn’t quite make it far enough south. I currently live and work in the Quad Cities with my wife of 10 years and our pit bull, Percy.
I’m a nerd of many colors — computers and technology, guitars, ham radio, a little dabbling in rc helicopters, and most of all…motorcycles.
…and yes, that is Grumpy Cat on my helmet.
Started racing with CCS in 2014, with a couple trips to the podium so far.
Introduced my wife to the track in 2014 and watched her instantly become as addicted as I am — she started racing in 2015.
Took MotoVid’s JP43 clinic with Jason Pridmore in 2015. It was an outstanding experience and I highly recommend it!
Track Day Advice:
Ride your own ride. Relax, have fun, and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
