About

Resa, Adelyn, James and I

Born and raised in Georgia.  I am currently living in Cumming, GA with my wife Resa, our daughter Adelyn Grace, and our son James Mahlon.  I have always been a racing fan since I was a little boy when my dad would take me to Road Atlanta to watch the Camel GT series races.  It was then I knew I wanted to become a racecar driver.  Growing up in the south it was hard not to be a NASCAR fan but I because of my exposure to Road Atlanta I was always more interested in Road Racing.  Starting in Club Racing and working up to a professional level racer helping to develop the E90 BMW chassis into a race winning car for Bimmerworld.
