SnapshotI am a Canadian whose heart is in racing, I started competing when I was 14, in karting. Academics has been a counterpart to most of my racing career. In 2015, I graduated with a B.Sc in Engineering Physics (Materials Option) from Queen’s University. I have a passion for science and technology and am a strong supporter of STEM education and initiatives. I find the technical side of racing fascinating. Outside of racing, I like to unwind by playing guitar, rock climbing, skiing in the winter, and white-water kayaking in the summer when the schedule allows. Although I live in Indianapolis, I also enjoy spending time at home in Canada with friends and family

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

My fitness routine includes:  I train with Pitfit and stay active with running, biking, and rock climbing. During the winter I also enjoy skiing

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

An interesting note about me: Last summer, I graduated from Queen’s University, in Kingston, Ontario with a degree in Engineering Physics
