Turning 17 I progressed into IMSA with the Super Trofeo Official series in 2021 obtaining several AM class wins, as well as being moved to the PRO class MID season. With 3 wins in 2022 inside the PRO category. It was a huge learning curve for me and even now I am still continually learning.

Born in South Africa and currently residing in Florida, I started racing Go-Karts at the young age of 4. After moving to the states I competed in a variety of Go-Kart series, one being ROK Cup USA. Making the transition into cars at the age of 14 racing MX-5 Miatas, Ferrari F430 and 458 challenges in club level racing, competing in Formula 4 as well as the Lucas oil school of racing course. while also coaching Ferrari challenge clients. Even while making the change to cars, Shifter karting is something I love competing in, giving me tons of experience allowing me to transfer it over to the big cars.

However, being incredibly lucky to be where I am today. My drive, ambitions, and love for the sport are incredibly high and not yet over!
