Nationality: American

Languages spoken: English

Height/weight: 5’7” / 150 lbs.

Education: High School

Talent I wish I had: I wish I had better foot coordination and running skills so that I could play soccer, but I am horrible at it. 

Hobbies: Music production has become a big hobby of mine. Some people would also consider me a gifted musician, as I can play any instrument without any instruction due to having “perfect pitch”

Best meal I can cook by myself:  I’ve upped my game. If you see me, ask me to cook you anything. 

Favorite restaurant: UchiKo in Austin, Texas

Favorite place to visit: My lake house in Lake George, NY. It’s upstate new York, and the cleanest lake you’ve ever seen

An interesting note about me: I used to play chess online at a nationally ranked level

Racing goal: To succeed in the NTT IndyCar Series and own a race team

Racing hero: Josef Newgarden
