Nationality: American

Height/weight: 5’11” / 185 lbs.

Education: Penn State Finance and Economics Undergraduate, currently pursuing an MBA at the University of Pittsburgh

Current sports played: Racing

Hobbies: Snow skiing, scuba diving, wakeboarding, working out and investing

Racing goal: To compete full time in the Verizon IndyCar Series

Racing hero: Will Power

My fitness routine includes: Three days of cardio, three days' weight-lifting and one day off per week

Any pre-race rituals or superstitions: Listen to music and focus in silence

The one talent I wish I had: The ability to sigh read music to play the piano

An interesting note about me: I enjoy making an annual trip to Park City, Utah, or Denver, Colorado, to ski with friends and I enjoy watching downhill slalom professionals. I have my open water diving certification, which I use when I am on vacation in the Caribbean. Wake boarding is a sport that I'm not very good at but really enjoy when with friends on the lakes or rivers in and around Pittsburgh. Working out is just essential for being a race car drover but something I enjoy year round. As a full-time banker I enjoy looking after my personal investments and keeping up on the financial markets.
