I have always been fascinated by people, our shared culture, and the vehicles that move us. When I was a teenager, my dad taught me to work on cars. He ignited a curiosity for vehicles of all kinds. Today, this passion burns bright in my career as an automotive journalist.
I am passionate about the preservation of vintage cars. At the same time, I believe the golden age of the automobile has yet to arrive!
I have been a freelance journalist for fifteen years. I graduated from the University of Vermont with a bachelor’s degree in English. I also earned a Level-II English Tutor certification from the National Tutoring Association, and in the process, I honed my attention to detail as an editor. While completing Northfield Mount Hermon’s teaching intern program, I learned to teach advanced English and journalism.
Producing case studies at Referential, I wrote to match the brand of many different clients. Writing for UVM Communications and HotCars.com, I thrived under deadline. I have the expertise and drive to produce first-rate journalism.
I am intrigued by any storied or quirky vehicle. I have enjoyed a range of my own automotive adventures. I have restored and maintained classic muscle cars. I have modified Japanese motorcycles. I have raced vintage Bugattis. I have even designed overland vehicles to explore the American West.
I am equally at home at a swap meet and at a concourse; I am comfortable speaking to any member of our automotive community. My calling is to educate and excite our entire family of enthusiasts.
