I have been featured on TV twice in my life; once syndicated nationwide on NBC and once LIVE on a local station.
 
 
 
 
 
HISTORY: Livin' A Dream...
 
     
 
To summarize my life in just one phrase, one needs only point to the three words that adorn the inside of my racecar. For me, these three words are not only my motto, they epitomize every day of my life.
 
     
 
Those who don't know me likely notice the physical effects of my battle with childhood cancer, but hopefully those who do know me are able to see a whole lot more. I hope you see a man who is thankful for every day; a man who continues to be amazed by the wonders of life, the beauty of the world, and the love of his close friends and family.
 
     
 
So whether I'm slinging a racecar into a corner, promoting a new race, standing on the main straight at the world's most famous race course, or simply watching the sun set over the Pacific with a close friend, one thing is for sure: I'm not just living my life, I'm Livin' A Dream...
