What is one surprising fact people may not know about you?
I am a Mechanical Engineering Major at Northwestern University.
What got you started in R/C?
After painting small model cars for years, I happened on a small parking lot track that my local hobby shop put up on weekends to hold small races. After trying it out once I was hooked for life :).
Why do you race?
Racing R/C is like being part of a huge family at the track. No matter how drive, what you drive, who you drive for, if you have problems at the track there will be somebody there that is always willing to help you out; even if it means putting yourself in a difficult situation before a race or qualifier. Guys may fight and yell at each other on the stand but as soon as the races is over everyone is friends again.
What would you like see happen to R/C in the coming years?
I would love to see R/C start to go mainstream. You can watch cup stacking and spelling B’s on ESPN but there is never a word uttered about the IFMAR worlds etc.
