Nationality: American

Languages spoken: English

Height/weight: 6’4” / 165 lbs.

Education: Attending Indiana University/Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI)

Hobbies: Basketball, baseball and working on cars

Favorite sports to watch: The NTT INDYCAR SERIES, Formula One and USAC racing

Favorite sports to play: Obviously racing, pick-up basketball with my buddies and I played baseball into high school

Interesting note about me: I'm likely one of the few drivers who can dunk a basketball. I’ve raced at IMS before, but in the parking lot in a quarter midget for the Battle at the Brickyard events in 2013 and 2014

Favorite drink: Pursue Happiness Cold Brew Coffee (pure coincidence they are a partner)

Best meal I can cook by myself: Peanut butter sandwich! 

The one person I would most like to meet: Parnelli Jones:  He was featured in the Wii Indy 500 Legends video game I played as a kid, then I learned more about his accomplishments and I also liked his name! Now, it’s a very cool coincidence that one of my Cape Motorsports teammates is his grandson, Jagger.

Racing goal: Make it to the NTT INDYCAR SERIES and become a successful paid/professional driver

Racing hero: Dario Franchitti
