A revolutionary and creative entrepreneur.

In the early 80's, at the dawn of the “Action Sports” era, Terence turned a childhood hobby of riding bikes into a professional career spanning almost ten years. Recognized as one of the world’s top Freestyle BMX riders by the time he was nineteen, he had also filed several design and technology patents for his bicycle parts company by the age of 18. In his career as an athlete, Terence managed numerous major sponsors including Ford Motorcars and toured extensively throughout Europe, America and the Middle East.

In the early 90’s he relocated to Los Angeles and produced live half-time action sports shows for the NFL, NBA and MTV. He started a TV production career, filming award winning action sports shows for cable networks such as FSN, ESPN and KSCI. By the late 90’s he was hired by a major, groundbreaking entertainment company to produce some of the earliest short form video content for Internet distribution.

In the year 2000, as a new motor sport called "drifting" emerged from Japan, Terence founded a new team called "Lateral G Racing". By 2004 the team, sponsored by Dodge/Mopar and Yokohama, had won the inaugural Formula Drift Championship. Terence signed a 5-year agreement with AndrettiGreen Racing to produce drift exhibitions at the IRL Honda Grand Prix of St Petersburg.

Terence ran Octane TV as Network Manager for three years, delivering almost 500 automotive shows for multi-platform distribution. He worked closely with NASCAR, Subaru, Castrol, and EA Games to name just a few.

In 2009 Terence was hired as SVP Operations and Competition Director for the Japanese drift series D1 Grand Prix in the US.

Terence continues to be very active in the world of production and motor sports.
