Personal Accomplishments in Drifting:
From day one that I started driving on the track I always wanted to become good enough to run with the big boys. Over the last couple of years I have sacrificed a lot in order for me to get better. Countless days of tuning the car to run better. Watching other drivers and how they drive and taking all of that and modeling my own personal style.

(Corey Z.: This is the heart of a drifter in a nutshell. And how alot of us do it! PROPS!)

Personal Goals for the Future:
I would like to be able to get a chance to drive with the guys from D1 and XDC and be able to travel to different places to drive with other drivers to be able to further my driving even more.
