Nationality: American

Languages spoken: English

Height/weight: 6' 1" / 160 lbs.

Education: High school degree

Hobbies: Wakesurfing, golf, sim racing, fishing, football

Favorite sports to watch: College football and, of course, the Georgia Bulldogs!! I am a massive fan of INDYCAR. My favorite current driver is Pato O’ Ward. I’m also a huge fan of F1 and my driver has to be Max Verstappen! I also really enjoy watching soccer – I do not have a favorite team but love the Premier League.

Favorite sports to play: : Other than racing I love golf. It is always fun to be outdoors enjoying the nice weather on the course. Golf is also extremely challenging, which could be a reason I like it so much. Lastly, I grew up playing high level hockey. I was an extremely cool experience being able to travel all over the country. I got to see extraordinary parts of America and Canada. 

Interesting note about me: I am pretty good at wakesurfing. I can do a whole range of tricks and even help coach people on how to get up and master the art of wakesurfing!

Training preferences: My favorite method for training cardio must be cycling. There is nothing quite like getting outside and riding. For strength, I really enjoy going to the gym to get the strength I need to drive a racecar.

Bucket list items: Go skydiving, go surf in the Maldives, and go tuna fishing!

Favorite food: Nothing beats a good steak with mashed potatoes and green beans

Guilty food pleasure: Drumsticks ice cream!!!!

Best meal I can cook by myself: The best meal I can cook is chicken parmesan. Chicken parmesan and steak are definitely my two favorite meals.

Racing goal: Race in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES

Racing hero: Hands down Jimmie Johnson
