Hobbies: Formula SAE, white water kayaking, guitar, skiing, working with anything mechanical

Snapshot: I am a down to earth, Canadian kid. I was born near Toronto and grew up going to school there. Before racing, I skied and learned to white-water kayak. These are still my favorite ways to unwind, when I get the chance. While racing is my life, I also study engineering physics at university. I am currently in my third year at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. Aside from racing and keeping up with school, the rest of my time is devoted to playing the guitar and keeping up with friends.

Racing goal: Climb the ranks of the Mazda Road to Indy, compete in the Verizon IndyCar Series, and win the Indy 500

Racing hero: Kimi Räikkönen

My fitness routine includes: ePitFit training program

Any pre-race rituals or superstitions: None in particular

The one talent I wish I had: I would like to speak more languages than just English and French
