I grew up knowing nothing about racing, although that quickly changed after experiencing the Indy 500 when I was 10. A month later my dad bought me a kart and I started racing

In 2016, I began my car racing career, I started racing in the F2000 championship series and starting my career off right by improving every race I competed in. I finished the season off by getting the fastest lap by a second.

In 2017, I moved into Formula Atlantics and got two podium finishes my first race weekend in the car. I also competed in two sportscar endurance races in a Ginetta GT4, in which I got a first and second place in my class.

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia when I was only 9 years old. Fibromyalgia is a disease that causes chronic, widespread pain. In 2016, I partnered with the National Fibromyalgia Association and became a National Spokesperson for Fibromyalgia. I am using my racing career to bring awareness to this condition, and inspire those affected with Fibromyalgia.

With the help of Champion Spark Plugs, I hope to continue to grow my career and spread awareness and hope for those with Fibromyalgia.
