i began my career in motorcycles after graduating (in 1994) from the american motorcycle institute (AMI) with harley davidson certifications. unexpectedly, i became heavily involved in professional ¼ mile motorcycle racing and became the crew chief for drag racing legend rickey gadson (1995 to 1999). i primarily built and tuned motors for the prostar 600cc supersport and the 750cc superbike classes. after my tenure with team kawasaki/muzzy i continued pursuing a passion for performance and worked at the cycle shop in philadelphia from 2000 to 2005 where I further developed skills by working with Carl Stieffenhofer. in 2006 i returned to my roots and opened w.a.c. cycles, focusing on bringing new levels of high performance to american v-twins.
since 2013 i have served as a professional technical advisor for the mirock, idbl, virginia motorsports park, atco raceway, and starting in 2018, the xda points series held at the maryland international raceway.
