Welcome to my personal site where the adults need adults, and Starbucks and Redbulls are the only reason we even get out of bed!  

Fun Facts​​

  • What is your dream occupation?  My dream occupation is to become a professional driver. 
  • Describe your first car and what you loved and hated about it. It was a 1989 Nissan Stanza. My pops gave it to me when I got my license and back then, I didn't know my ass from a dipstick. I loved that car because it was my first car. The only thing I "hated" about it was that it finally gave up on me after 4 years of having it.
  • What else do you enjoy besides drifting?  I enjoy riding horses. I used to have one of my own, but I had to give him up because I couldn't afford him anymore. Hopefully when I complete school and get a good job I can get another one.
  • What accomplishment are you most proud of? Becoming a parent!
  • Do you have any hidden talents?  I wouldn't call it "hidden" but I can dance. I've been dancing since I was 17, I started breakdancing and just sort of went from there. I can also sing, but that's definitely a hidden talent, the type that stays in the shower or my car, hahaha!
  • Who is your best friend and why? As cliche' as it's gonna be; I'd have to say my boyfriend, Dickey Sanders. He is my bestie because we do everything together. We're weirdly comfortable with each other (like pooping with the door open comfortable) and we can talk about anything and everything. We support each other, and we talk through the issues and arguments we get into. He's a wonderful person.
  • What's your guilty pleasure? Seagrams Jamaican Me Happy
  • Have you lived anywhere else besides Florida? Yes, I grew up in a military household, so we moved around a lot. I've lived in the Phillippines, Thailand, Germany, England, New York, Ohio, and Michigan.
  • Top 5 Pet Peeves: Bullies, bad customer service, discourteous people, left lane drivers, and running out of toilet paper.
Who is Sway?
Karin, aka "Sway," has been a participant of extreme sports since age 11, participating in sports such as skateboarding, surfing, snowboarding, and aggressive inline. The nickname "Sway" occured some odd years later when she picked up breakdancing during high school, earning her moniker "B-Girl Sway". Karin has no formal dance training and has only ever been self-taught. She has practiced various disciplines from styles of hip hop to ballet, latin, and gogo. "tappedby_sway" later came when she started drifting in 2013 as a joke between friends about her tendencies to 'tap' her friends' bumpers at traffic lights.

Before drifting, Karin participated in motorsports such as drag racing and autocross but quit shortly after having no real interest in either sport. Dissatisfied with both racing styles, Karin discovered drifting through friends and started focusing her energy and time into becoming a better driver for the next three years with hopes to drive professionally in the future.
