Saying goodbye to Sonoma

Here we are again, at the end of another IndyCar season. Hard to believe the championship-deciding weekend is already upon us.

Nineteen Years, A Survivor

19 years ago today, I was diagnosed with Leukemia. I endured 2.5 years of chemotherapy and never stopped fighting. I knew it wasn't my time. I knew I had more to do in life, more to experience... and I decided I would never forget that once it was all over. I promised myself to always... Continue Reading →

Ready for holiday travel!

This is the first time I can remember having legitimate travel plans around Christmas time. I've always been lucky to have the majority of my family here in Ohio and have celebrated the holidays in and around Cleveland my entire life. Christmas Eve is normally spent at my Nana's house.
