A proud Rhode Islander, he is New England's premier auto-racing historian and preservationist, the result of 25-plus years of gathering and compiling. His dedication to that endeavor is surpassed only by his willingness to share his collection and knowledge. The contributions of the one-time Class B car Seekonk competitor are immeasurable when it comes to providing a historical basis.

A race watcher since attending the first-post war race at Rhode Island's Ponta Del Gada Speedway, he is also a force in the ProNyne Motorsports Museum in Pawtucket, R. I.
