Bio

In my career, I lead by example. In doing so, I am driven to execute and deliver an end product to be proud of. Taking on what needs to be done and owning it through to the end and beyond is what I strive for whenever I am involved. This has allowed me to excel in many of my work projects, as well as my personal life as a total gearhead. I believe that with teamwork and personal responsibility, any team can achieve greatness.

Automotive

  • 2021
    CIRCUIT OF THE AMERICAS
    Motorsport Marshal

    They are an integral part of the race, keeping the track clear, giving instructions to the drivers, and responding to incidents. These are the people who have the front row seats, with no-one getting any closer to the action unless they get their own racing car. They are highly trained to handle crashes, fire, the needs of drivers who may be injured, and track cleanup. They have other duties, too, including signalling the drivers with flags and keeping their sections of the track organized so that racing can proceed efficiently. When handling crashes and fires, these workers have been called the “shock troops” of racing, because until the ambulances, fire trucks, and crash/rescue vehicles arrive, the safety and efficiency of the track is in their hands.
