Born and raised in New York City, Yves started racing karts at just four years old. What started off as a weekend activity soon turned into a profession that led him to become one of the youngest drivers of a Formula Car.

Growing up, Yves would regularly travel the length and breadth of the United States taking part in karting series between school.  In 2015 Yves was granted permission to test a Skip Barber Formula Car (at the time, he was just 13 years old). 

Seeking the best competition environment, Yves relocated to the UK when he was 14 and began testing single seat race cars at various circuits while continuing with his studies.

In 2017 Yves relocated to Spain and began testing more powerful forms of Formula Cars at circuits throughout Europe.  This resulted in a race seat in the highly competitive EuroFormula Series with the renowned race team, Campos Racing.  

Yves is mature beyond his years and puts significant attention on health, fitness, nutrition and mental preparation.  He divides his time between the factory in Valencia, various race tracks in Europe and home in New York City.
