Life on the Road
- What is the best and worst thing about being on the road every weekend with Monster Jam?
The best part about being in the road with Monster Jam is getting to see all the different cities and towns we get to visit as well with all of the great fans that come to all of our events. I don’t think there’s a worst part about being on the road with Monster Jam, but it is a bummer to be away from your friends and family on the weekends. I would say the worst part is not sleeping in your own bed.

My favorite thing to do in my free time is go out and explore the beautiful cities that we get to travel to.

The item I cannot live without while traveling on the road is, like most people, my phone. It’s always nice to be able to stay in touch with family.

I reached out to Todd LeDuc and talked to him about how much he enjoys it. He got me in contact with the best people, and I ended up getting an opportunity to tryout and made it.
- What is your favorite part about competing in Monster Jam?
My favorite part about competing in Monster Jam is being able to go out and race and compete in freestyle in front of sold-out stadiums and arenas all over the world.
- How would you describe your driving style?
I would say my driving style is aggressively calm. You have to push when you need to but be able to reel yourself back in to put on the best event.

Don’t ever give up; always keep striving for what you want to accomplish.
