about

  • What are some of your interests/hobbies/favorite pastimes?
    Bowling, R/C cars and monster trucks.
  • Who are your role models? 
    My parents are probably my biggest role models. They have taught me that responsibility, drive and passion help to achieve my goals in life.
  • Do you have any ‘pre-show’ rituals you run through? 
    I try to get myself pumped up for the event before it starts by talking to my teammates about what we need to do to win and perform well.
  • What’s something a lot of people don’t know about you?
    I am pretty reserved and somewhat quiet outside of Monster Jam.
  • What is your favorite memory on or off the racetrack?
    My first overall racing championship in Crown Point, IN after only driving for a few short weeks.
  • What’s your most prized possession?
    My family.

life on the road

  • What is the best and worst thing about being on the road every weekend with Monster Jam? 
    The best thing about being on the road with monster Jam is getting to meet all of the great Monster Jam fans and seeing new cities. The worst thing about being on the road every weekend is not being at home or being able to sleep in my own bed and of course spending time with my family.
  • While on the road, what is your favorite thing to do during your free time? 
    I try to find something to do that involves competing or racing.
  • How do you keep fit?
    Exercise and eat healthy as often as I can. Sometimes that’s hard when we’re on the road.
  • What item(s) can you not live without while traveling on the road with Monster Jam? 
    Clean clothes.
  • What is your favorite city to travel to? Why? 
    Wildwood, NJ because we got to race on a unique track on the beach. The scenery and people are very nice and the weather is always great that time of year. I also had a memorable and epic race against my dad during that event in 2018.

career

  • How did you get started competing in Monster Jam? 
    I started working with my family on our Monster Jam truck, Jester. After a few short years, I became Crew Chief for my dad’s truck and then eventually ended up building my own truck – Kraken.
  • What is your favorite part about competing in Monster Jam? 
    Meeting the fans and getting to compete alongside some of the best Monster Jam athletes.
  • How would you describe your driving style? 
    I’m a relatively new driver so I am still creating my driving style each and every week.

    Follow your dreams and never give up until you reach them.

    In my short career as a Monster Jam driver, I would have to say that competing in my fire-ever event in Bridgestone, CT in 2018.
