Bio
 I was born and raised in Limestone County. I enjoy sports (hockey, football, and baseball). During the warm months I drag race my Suzuki GSX-R 750. I have won 7 individual championships and 5 track championships at the Huntsville Dragway. I also like riding dirtbikes (I have a Suzuki DR350). I follow many different forms of motorsports: NHRA Drag Racing, NASCAR, AMA Superbike, Supercross, Tractor Pulling, and many more. I like to machine custom parts for racing and pulling vehicles. Another one of my hobbies is playing music. Although I'm a guitar player first, I also play the drums, mandolin, keyboard, fiddle, bass, and 6-string banjo. I'm grateful that I have a job that combines two things I'm passionate about - teaching and machining.
