I started doing HPDE events in mid 2012 and became an HPDE instructor in 2014. I have worked with several DE organizations over the last few years but a majority of my time instructing is with Hooked on Driving North East Region and Summit Point Friday at the Track. Back in 2006-2008 I also had the pleasure of living in Germany and made frequent trips to the Nurburgring and Hockenheimring. 

I have driven an interesting smattering of cars on track that has given me experience with both FWD and RWD vehicles to include an 07 Rabbit, 08 135i vert, and an 11 Jetta Sportwagen TDI. Because there aren't many instructors with FWD experience, you will often find me in the right seat of VWs and Minis on track. 

Besides Hockenheimring and Nurburgring, my on track experience includes Watkins Glen (both layouts), Road Atlanta Full Course, 4 Pocono configurations including the Tri-oval, Lime Rock, VIR Full and Grand and several more. 

You can find track videos in my YouTube Channel, I have started posting pictures of events to Instagram, and I occasionally post on Twitter and my blog

Feel free to approach me if you see me at an event and introduce yourself.
