About Me
 
 
96% Complete Bio
Born in Santa Monica, CA and transplanted to Mississippi at very young age. I was raised around an auto dealership run by my mom. My dad was an MD and let her run the dealership to keep her out of trouble I guess. I wasn't so lucky as I stayed in trouble. Played FB, did Martial Arts and raced cars. That was my life until I joined the Army and Uncle Sammy decided to chunk me out of perfectly good airplanes for no good reason. Still don't know what I did to piss him off. Worked for the Fed, State and County Law Enforcement plus I've owned my own engine machine shop. I've raced SCCA, NHRA, IHRA and local dirt. Now I do more watching than doing.
