How did you get your start in racing? I moved back to Baltimore after college and started applying to jobs around the MD/DC area. I reached out to John Lopes with Andretti and luckily they were looking for someone to help them with public relations for the Grand Prix of Baltimore. I've loved every minute of my time in racing – I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to work with!
How long have you been working in racing? I have been working in racing for a little over four months. My first race was the Grand Prix of Baltimore presented by SRT.
What is your favorite racing memory while working here? My favorite racing memory while working for Andretti was watching Ryan Hunter-Reay win in Baltimore. It was cool to see my hometown transform into a street circuit and embrace INDYCAR.
Who is one of your favorite racing figures? Mario Andretti is my favorite racing figure.
Who’s your Super Bowl pick? Baltimore Ravens of course!
