Forest City, NC

1926 Harley-Davidson JD

I grew up riding dirt bikes and 4 wheelers in Malone, a small town on the Canadian border in northern NY.  I acquired my motor cycle license a few days after my 16th birthday and have never looked back. Though I’ve owned many bikes over the years, old and new, the old ones capture my attention most. Starting with shovelhead choppers in my earlier years, my focus has moved more towards pre WWII bikes. Mechanical systems have always been an interest of mine and I’m currently working as a Critical Facility Engineer for Facebook in Forest City NC where I maintain the critical mechanical systems of the data center located there. I am a very active member of the legends chapter of the AMCA and attend many of the AMCA events and road runs. I love to find old bikes and get them running and looking forward to the cannon ball for my next major challenge. I have wanted to be a part of this race for many years and had the luxury of meeting many of the racers over the years whom I have followed very closely. I am looking forward to creating new lifelong memories and meeting new lifelong friends along the way.
