Working For CFPS Since:

2006

Favorite Powersports Vehicle:

Off road motorcycles! I enjoy riding trails, hillclimbs, jumping and moto, especially the day after it has rained. I am currently riding KTM and Yamaha 450cc bikes in the woods and on the track. I am also riding the all new Yamaha FZ-07 on the street!

How I Got Into Powersports:

My older brother brought home the first motorcycle in 1968 to meet our family. My dad kicked him out of the house out of fear my brother would join a biker gang! (The times were different toward bikers back then... some restaurants would refuse service if you rode up on a motorcycle!) My dad's friends convinced him to let my brother move back home. Soon after, Honda advertised "You Meet the Nicest People on a Honda" and I got my first Mini Trail 50. Thank you, brother Bill for paving the way for me (and now, my family)! Oh, and he never joined a biker gang and now retired, rides all over the USA on bikes with his wife.

My Best Vacation Ever:

I try to take a ride vacation or water ski vacation once a week! We have several FL locations we enjoy riding or skiing during the week when it is less busy than weekends.

Best off road vacation: (tie) Durhamtown Plantation, GA and Land Between the Lakes, KY

Best street ride vacation: Smokey Mountain region! Tennessee, North Carolina and the north GA ribbon roads rule!!

My Favorite Food:

Spaghetti! Bon appetit!

Something Most People Don't Know About Me:

I was percussion section leader in my high school band and still play drums today. My late uncle, Donald "Duck" Dunn is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

I am an Eagle Scout...my parents "encouraged" me to get this award before I turned 18 and would no longer be eligible. I beat the deadline by a week!

I hold a Florida real estate license.

My first BMX bike was a Spyder bike from Sears, with my motorcycle handlebars added...not sure if it was spelled Spyder, but it was a cool bike.

I came to FL to water ski for my college ski team, Florida Southern College in Lakeland. That was a winning tale!
