I was introduced to the world of drone racing in the summer of 2015. My buddy Sean Stanford told me about quadcopters and showed me a few videos on youtube. When I saw a video of quadcopters flying through the forest, I just lost my mind. I did not know exactly what it was all about, but I knew I needed it in my life.
I was working as a firefighter at the time, and spent most of my spare time in the drag car racing scene. Now, I have given it all up for drone racing. I sold my cars and quit my job so I can fly drones 24/7. I am currently sponsored by DHL Motorsports and started to sell my own quadcopter parts through my company called DarkSide Quads LLC. My wife and I have been married since 2007, and we are expecting our first child in December of 2018. I do not know what the future holds, but I am excited to find out. Win or lose, no regrets! My motto has been and always will be: on to the next race!
