I grew up in a motorcycling family and began riding at the age of 7. By the time I was 10 years old I started armature racing and have ridden and competed in many different types of motorcycling events. I have over 40 years of experience ridding on two wheels. Currently assigned to the Matthews Police Department as Patrol Division Commander, I still enjoy staying connected to motorcycling both in law enforcement and on my personnel time. I ride regularly in the dirt and on the street, and even get out there once in a while at work. I hope to be able to contribute in some way to make motorcycles safe and enjoyable for everyone that also appreciates traveling on two wheels.
