When did you start racing?

I started drag racing in 2001, did sprints / hill climbs from about 2002, and started state racing in 2008. I ran my first National level meeting in 2009 (V8 Supercar round at Phillip Island), and then started running at the Shannons Nationals in 2010.

When did you start Saloon car racing?

July 2008, in an EA Falcon

What do you love most about Saloons?

I love the Ford vs Holden battle, the affordability, and the great people I have met since I started in Saloons.

Favourite Race track?

Has to be Bathurst !!! Nothing beats it!

Career highlight?

My first ever race in my AU – Bathurst 2010. I have never been so terrified, and excited all at the same time.

First Car?

1973 Toyota Corolla coupe. It was a super awesome 1.1L 2 speed auto weapon !! hahaha.

Favourite movie?

Hard to pick just 1. Talladega Nights always gives me a laugh.

What is your regular job?

I have a few actually. I work full time for a large IT company, and I am a qualified driving instructor.  I also have my own web design business.

What do you do to relax?

Go racing 😛 hahaha. Umm, when I am not at a track (which is very rarely), probably just kick back at home, and do some video editing.

Do you have any pets?

Yes – 3 cats – Turbo, Nitro and Shelby.

Is there anything you are afraid of?

Spiders !!!
