We’re sisters! So we’re been together from day 1. We grew up riding dirt bikes and skateboards and spending our days at the shop with our parents. While we both took paths in the automotive world, Alex took a path of driving and being on camera and the business side of the world and Meg took a photography, design, and marketing path. We work together so we travel a lot together but this will be the first time doing an adventure like this together where we’re both in the middle of it.
Alex is a builder, creator, driver (mainly drag racer), co-host it MotorTrend's Hot Rod Garage, and higher performance content creator. Alex grew up in the shop from just a few weeks old and has been hands on learning by following her dad in the Hot Rod shop that her parents own and operate.

Do thing now that others won’t, so you can live the rest of your life like others can’t.
I’ve been over 200 MPH in the 1/8th mile, 1/4 mile, and 3 mile marks. (Drag racing and land speed racing)
I love trying things that push me out of my confront zone and to help me grow as a diverse driver. I also love having the chance to meet new people with great mindsets to help expand my horizon. When the opportunity to drive in the Rebelle came up, just like with any opportunity, I weighed the pros and the cons. After talking with those associated with the rally or past participants, the pros so greatly outweighed everything else I couldn't say no. The more involved I have gotten the more excited I am to compete in an even u like any other that I've done before. Plus, I get to go with my sister Meg so that's a really neat opportunity as well.
My dad. I've learned so much from him and he just "gets it". He raised me to always take a challenge on. As he says, "if someone else can do it, why can't I?" That’s shaped a lot of my perspective of how I approach things.

Can I say life in general? I'm so lucky to get to live doing what I love. I remember when I was younger my dad would say that he likes to wake up not knowing what he's going to do the next day, and now I get it and say that too. I am thankful to get to spend my life doing things like drag and drive drag racing events, to land speed racing, to driving a promod drag car, to building cars at home with my family, to building and driving cars at MotorTrend's Hot Rod Garage, to going to the lake to water ski, or squeezing in an extra day to adventure in a new state on a work trip, just to nans a few. So picking just 1 great adventure seems impossible.
I'm just very blunt person that loves capturing moments with photography/videography/design and sharing them with the world!

I started taking photos to avoid being in them, but fell in love with photography which lead to my current career!
My sister called me and asked, I said no. About 10 minutes later, I changed my mind and said yes. After learning about it, it sounded like a mistake to pass up the opportunity!
I'm surrounded by people, especially my family, who are trying to achieve their dreams, no matter how untraditional/unconventional they may be. They all inspire me to keeping working towards my own goals!

After I graduated college with a B.S. in Graphic Design in May of 2022, I have been saying yes to every opportunity I can! It has led me to working for my sister where I join her on A LOT of her crazy adventures in the drag racing world, as well as working for Isky Racing Cams which has taken me all over the country. I never know what my next month will look like or where I will be, I feel like I'm living out an adventure everyday at this stage in my life!
