Personal Questions:

Date of Birth? December 22, 1973

Where do you live? St Louis, MO

Where were you born? STL

What is one surprising fact people may not know about you?  Nothing really.  What you see is what you get.

What got you started in R/C?  I received a Tamiya Blackfoot as a Christmas gift when I was 14.

Why do you race?  Competition

What would you like see happen to R/C in the coming years? I would like to see it become more mainstream.   One of our local tracks, Redline R/C in Marion, IL, is in a Mall.   More places like that would be nice.
