Aspiring motorsports journalist, Boston University class of 2013. This is a collection of my work starting with the 2012 motorsports season. Feel free to follow me on Twitter and be sure to read my most popular pieces.
Reflecting on the life of three-time Formula 1 world champion Ayrton Senna, 18 years after his tragic passing in the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. Intense and devoted, Senna was a man of integrity like few in his sport, refusing to fold in the face of numerous battles both on and off the race track.
Senna was a throwback, one of the last remaining drivers who asserted himself as a leader in the sport with businesslike efficiency and a surgeon’s precision. Beating his opponents was nothing personal; it was just his job. And like any effective mercenary, use of his set of skills would not be compromised by any jarring emotions, and especially not a hostile work environment.
