    First thanks for taking some time to answer a few questions for us!

    How did you get started in PWC racing?
    I always have had jetskis as a kid and I saw some racing on TV when I was 13 and started racing on and off at local region 8 races over the years. Started racing regularly in 2010.

     

    What is your most memorable race so far?
    Havasu 2011. Hole shot my qualifier with a full Line and able to get into the main on my first trip to Havasu and in Pro-Am R/A Stock class .

     

     

    You broke your leg at the Liquid Militia Team Weekend last year. How did that happen?
    Lets just say I was feeling the love a little too much, LOL. Also, I unknowingly had a stress fracture in my leg already from a previous MX incident. Combine all that with GP Ski in some pretty nasty surf conditions= Broken Leg

    You raced a few rounds of the CWA Tour still in a cast. What was that like?
    Racing with the cast was easy . It was calm conditions for the most part and I was able to hole shot each moto to get that clean water.

     

    What are your plans for 2013?
    I plan winning the CWA tour in the Pro-am R/A Stock class on a Kawasaki 300x, attend the world finals, and do a little partying;)
