He is also an expert level road racing enthusiast and has been a coach for over a decade. What could be better than combining analytics and racing skills to one of the greatest sports … MotoGP. He started his passion for motorcycles and racing growing up in Northern California.

In fact, his first track day was at Laguna Seca and he never looked back, now teaching road racing on the east coast. He still loves dirt bikes so when he can’t make a track day, he cross trains on his four mile grass track at the farm.
