I have been an Off Road enthusiast all my life. Started
racing my Hodaka 100 in the late 60's. Worked at Cycle Products West in my
teens porting cylinders and modifying suspension on all sorts of motorcycles.
My father was a design engineer for the automotive and aerospace industry and he
gave me some really great support with my hobbies. He always said to do what

In the mid 70's I worked as a Crew Chief, Designer and
Driver for United Industries (Steve Kelley) I built and maintained a Class 8
race Truck for Score Off Road Races. Later we teamed up with Pacific Clark
Aiken (PCA) and also entered every Mickey Thompson Off Road race at Riverside,
In the early 80's I teamed up with Precision Preparation
Inc. (PPI) Cal Wells and Toyota to engineer and build state of the art off road
race trucks for such names as Ivan Stewart, Robby Gordon, Michael Nesmith, Ted

Later moving over to Wide Open Baja to run their engineering
and race prep facility.
Today, I am a freelance engineer and enjoying
life with good friends and still enjoying my weekends on my dirt bike in the
