Although I grew up riding motorcycles, I never had the opportunity to compete in organized racing until the young age of 35. My first race was MX in 1996 on a XR600. A year later, I discovered AHRMA and soon I was on the starting line on a 1974 CR250 and never looked back. When AHRMA started a cross country series, I was excited to get back to where I was comfortable riding (trails). In 2004 I relocated to West Central Pennsylvania and started racing regional AHRMA races. At that time, Cross Country was struggling to get 10 riders to show up. I met and became friends with Steve Paulk who was in charge of the XC program. Steve had me as his assistant for a few seasons as I learned the ropes of putting on races. When Steve stepped down I offered to take the position of the PVR / AHRMA Cross Country coordinator. I am employed as a key operator for a Pizza Hut franchise and have been in the business for over 30 years. I am married to a beautiful woman, Darlene and we have two children. I’m enjoying watching my son learn to ride and race now, both modern and vintage bikes.
I started riding at age 10...a converted Kawasaki J1 85cc road bike into a trials machine for my first bike. About 1970, Next, I got a Bultaco Lobito 125 paid by my modest paper route! Later came a Bultaco Alpina 175 trials/trail crossover type bike. Along they way, a "custom" Hodaka MX to Rickman/ Zundapps and a used Penton 175 Jackpiner. I think that's when I developed my lifelong appreciation for ISDT riders. I competed enduros and hare scrambles until age 19, then focusing on BMW road models. The vintage off road thing came along about 2004, I got a 1970 Ossa Plonker and started competing. I then got my father's old Ossa's running again- a MAR and a SDR. In a couple of years, I wound up with six restored Ossa's in my little row house! We now have a nice collection, Mid Atlantic Vintage Bikes housed in the Broom Factory in Baltimore. I also trail ride a Mountaineer in dual sports and vintage enduro / cross country. I decided to get involved in the York Bike Show with Nick Taylor in 2015, which led to joining the club.
