What are your favorite off-season hobbies?
I play a lot of hockey. I try to play it a little during the season just to have something to get my mind off the race car for a few hours during the week. I play in a hockey league in Woodstock right now and do pick-up otherwise. Other than that, I do a little hunting and spend some time at my camp on Woodbury Lake.
What do you do for work?
I work for New England Precision in Randolph, VT. I’m a Quality Assurance Technician. It’s a metal-stamping company, and I measure the parts and make sure they’re correct before, during, and after we make them.
What would you say is your biggest life accomplishment?
Hopefully I’ve got some big ones to come. So far I’ll go with graduating from Clarkson University (class of 2014).
