It all started with a stupid Moped that wouldn’t run… now 40+ years later, a whole bunch of bikes, 15 years as the GM of a large powersports dealership in Seattle, I seem to be addicted to motorcycles and motorcycling! Fortunately my incredible wife of 30 years supports my “habit”, recently got her own endorsement, and our two sons typically join in the fun. So whether it is riding dirt bikes in the desert, on blasting up the dunes, dual sporting around the world, touring 2-up with my wife through the SW or our latest trip to Iceland, heading to a rally, track days up and down the West coast, or racing with WMRRA, it’s not just the sport, but the people I meet and the friends made along the way that fuel my enthusiasm and passion.
I strongly believe in training and as riders, we should never stop learning, always searching for the next class, book, mentor, or instructor to help us achieve a lifelong goal of safely enjoying our sport. In particular, training and riding on the track has had the greatest impact on my abilities to ride safer on the street with more enjoyment. It is why I decided to join Mark and the incredible 2Fast team. It doesn’t matter what you ride or how many cc’s, from a scooter to a full dress cruiser, invest in yourself and get on the track.
I am excited and honored to be part of the 2fast team and look forward to sharing whatever kernels of wisdom will help you become better and safer riders.
When not on a motorcycle, you’ll find me spending as much time as possible with my wife, sons, and friends, exploring all things outdoors.
