Born in Detroit, I have always loved cars. Currently own a modified 2006 MX-5 and an as-yet unmolested 2006 Cayman S. Started driving on racetracks about 10 years ago and got hooked. I enjoy sharing the passion as an instructor at Gateway in St L.

Story

Born in Detroit, I have always loved cars. Our first “toy” was a 1990 Miata when we lived in Denver, but she had to be sold when we moved to BC, Canada and lived at the end of a mile-long mud and dirt road. 20 years and 3 kids latter we moved off the island and back to pavement. The first and easiest purchase decision was buying another Miata.

I’d started driving on the track at Pacific Raceways and the joys of driving followed me to the Midwest and Gateway International.

A buddy and I jumped into One Lap of America with an Infiniti Q50 Hybrid thinking we had a shot at the Alt Fuel class, but 2019 was the first year that the charging infrastructure was sufficient to support Teslas in that race and they ambushed us! Still had a blast and hope to get back to OLOA in 2022!

We added a 2006 Cayman S in 2020 to keep up with track-day traffic, and last month my wife had her first day on track in her Mini Cooper.

I enjoy sharing the passion as an instructor at Gateway in St L.
