Prior Racing Experience:

I have been Karting since age 4. At age 14 I completed Lucas Oil Racing School and received my first SCCA racing license and soon after received my NASA license. Through the years I have won many local and national races in karts and cars. In 2018, I won a Florida championship in Karting that awarded me a 4-Year college scholarship to a Florida school. On March 6, 2019, I drove to the win on the winning team against 14 teams with professional Indy race car drivers on the streets of St Petersburg Florida in the Kart4Kids as a Participant to raise funds for John Hopkins Children Hospital. My team was lead by professional race car driver Patricio O'Ward and the event raised $185,000.00! In 2020 I acquired my Indy racing license and competed in my first MX-5 Cup race at St. Petersburg qualifying 17th and working my way up to finish 10th in race one awarding me the hard charger award and working my way up to finish 9th in race two. In 2020, I acquired my IMSA racing license and in 2021 I raced in the Spec MX5 challenge and won 2nd place overall in the Championship along with emerging talent award with a total prize value of $25,000.00 towards Mazda racing! In Daytona I finished 3rd place in race 2, my first MX5 Cup podium!
