Since the age of 3, I have been riding motorcycles in the desert. When I turned 18, I started working for American Honda Motor Corporation and met Johnny Campbell. He took me under his wing and showed me every aspect of racing, planning, prepping, and running a team. I was very successful racing at Honda and had dozens of 2nd place Overall Baja Finishes, many Class wins in BITD Series racing solo and a lot of success in AMA/D37 Desert Racing. In 2005, I was hired to race on the Factory Red Bull/ KTM US Rally Team for the Dakar Rally. I finished 9th overall in 2005, 4th in 2006, and 3rd in 2007. I am still only one of three Americans to ever make the podium in the Dakar Rally on a Motorcycle!
