I started racing around 2010. Because of job pressures and health issues, I stopped riding. After I finally realized that my job was going to kill me, I made a career move in 2013. Best decision ever! I joined a local race/club team and started to race again. I won my first RR in 2014 at San Ardo as a Cat 4. I grew up in Watsonville, and moved to Fresno in the early 1980s. [As of 2020] I am 62 years old (Race age 63). I hope I have a couple good race years still ahead of me. But, unfortunately I was hit by a car and currently recovering from my injuries. I am married to Michelle for 25 years. We have a daughter Hana 20 and son Davis 18 years old.
