Background - How you got into cars and how did you hear about Mischief?

"For someone who's racing career started in 1992 as an ATV racer in Ecuador riding a Yamaha Banshee, Dado has come a long way. He moved to the US at the age of 17, just in time for the car-craze to get big. Along with a number of BMW owning friends, Dado founded DTMPower.net; a website revolving around car meets and various motor sport related activities. With over 70,000 registered members, DTMPower had taken the web by storm. Part of the site's popularity can be contributed to a vast collection of videos showcasing the many adventures resulting from these various car meets. Enter Dustin from Teckademics.The partnership would resulted in a selection of DVDs which have sold into platinum status and a potential TV show on MTV. The 8th DVD is currently in the works. As a performance Driver, Dado has earned top spots in many competitions and is practically a brand-name in the field. He is the pilot of a famed yellow M3, which has been featured in more magazines than can be mentioned here and its appearance in the Teckademic DVDs has only made it more identifiable to fans and media alike. In 2005, as driver of the Moore Cadillac Drift CTS-V, Dado again found himself in the spot light. Both Speed Channel and Fox News captured his driving skills as he took the luxury sedan and made it competitive; winning two events and failing to fall outside the top 10 throughout the season. There is no question that the talents of Dado took the drifting community by surprise when he slid that 4000lb monster of an American car into sport previously dominated by small import roadsters.On April 2011 Dado became a proud dad to a beautiful girl. He mostly rides his Ducati to meets and drives now."
