Home state? Illinois

Favorite track/race: Lake County Fairgrounds is a fun technical SX track in northern Illinois where I did my first race.

How many years have you been riding? This is my 7th year.

Favorite Food: Raspberries

Hobbies: Skiing, snowmobiling and running.

Best Vacation: Mountain biking and backcountry hiking in Lake Tahoe with my sister and parents.

Who is your hero and why? Chase Sexton is my hero because he grew up racing in my AMA district, Illinois district 17. He always comes back home in September for the fair race at Megacross in Mendota. Chase worked hard and made it to the Supercross podium.

Why did you start riding?  My dad took us to a fair race in Woodstock, Il and after a few motos, we realized kids my age were racing. We headed down out of the bleachers and got our own bike ready to race by the next friday.

Do you have any siblings that ride?
