Fun Fact:
Most people don’t know, but I love to cook

How I got started
My Dad loved cars and loved tinkering with cars but my Dad also had a strong work ethic, sometimes working 3 jobs, at a time, to put a roof over our heads, food on our plates and a car to tinker with.
Most Memorable TEAM GT Moment:
The many road trips across America, whether east coast to west coast or traversing north and south, I’m lucky to have driven across these United States. But my most memorable was setting the cross-country record (NY to LA), in 31:59 (31 hours, 59mins) with one of my best friends in 2007.

My ideal roadtrip would be
I hope to drive from Dallas to the southernmost tip of South America (something like the Pan-American Highway, 19K miles)
