How did you get started in racing?
Both my older brothers and dad were racing so I wanted to start racing too.
What is your favourite track and why?
Pleasant Valley MX and Mill Hill MX are both my favourites because they are really good tracks and have lots of good jumps and berms.
Who is your favourite rider and why?
Ken Roczen because he is doing so good at motocross this year and he is still having lots of fun.
What Canadian Pro do you look up to and why?
Tyler Medaglia because he got 5th in the Nationals last year and I hope he does well this year.

My whole family is my hero: my two brothers, my mom and dad.
What are your goals for this season, and what is it going to take to reach them?
I want to have lots of fun and get first in Atlantic Canada and top 3 in Canada. It is going to take hard work and lots of practice.
