Born in Nuremburg Germany to a military family, Marcello moved about the world settling in Kansas in the mid eighties.
He learned to ride motorcycles in middle school by "borrowing" his dads 1981 Honda CB650C for neighborhood exploring.
He has been a bicycler all his life diving into mountain biking during college at Kansas State University. After school Marcello entered into the job market within the construction field giving up motorcycling for about 10 years for family and work obligations. In 2002 he happened back into the motorcycle world when he purchased a Suzuki RF900. He met a small but fast group of riders on the back roads of Kansas.
In 2003 Marcello upgraded to a new Yamaha R6 and joined a new track day vendor called Trackaddix. He volunteered his time with the organization and helped them grow learning as much as he could while riding with them. As his skill set built he became a rider coach and then an instructor with them.
In 2016 Marcello moved to the Pacific Northwest for work. For the first year here, he spent time exploring the area on his V-Strom and found the time to do a track day at the Ridge. Marcello is back at it and we are happy to add his knowledge and skills to our events.
