Hometown: East Peoria, IL
Background in Motocross: I started riding at 3 years old. At the age of 5, I began racing flat track and quickly transitioned to motocross at the age of 7. Since then, I’ve mostly been riding for fun on the weekends with a few races here and there. I mainly grew up riding hare-scramble style terrain, providing me with a well rounded balance on a dirt bike.
Occupation/Education: I am currently a member of the IBEW Local 34 as an electrical apprentice with 2 years left of my apprenticeship. I specialize in solar technology with a background in both industrial and commercial applications.
