After years of collecting Hot Wheels, watching almost every car movie imaginable, and spending three hours studying the pages of Evo magazine, Road & Track and Motorsport for every hour spent studying math, history and science, I decided it was finally time to do something in the car world. With that, I set my sights on journalism and hit the ground running after studying journalism at Centennial College in Toronto. Three years later, here I am, doing road tests of Silverados, AMGs and everything in-between and covering auto shows, motorsport, green car tech and car culture in general. While I like to think like a consumer, finding out what cars mean to people past A to B shuttling is a true passion of mine; I love hearing stories of how people felt when they first got behind the wheel, or when they first came home with their license, ready to hit the open road on their own accord. Now based out of Vancouver, my hometown, I’ll be bringing some of that West Coast je ne sais quoi, not to mention photos from any number of the great locations ‘round here.

Review: 2015 Hyundai Tucson FCEV

I have sampled the next frontier of motoring. I wouldn’t call it the “final” frontier, because a) I’ve been taught to “never say never or always” and b) the car and tech worlds constantly combine to form a great beast that needs to keep expanding to stay alive, vibrant and relevant. As far as this writer’s concerned, though, it is ...

2016 Chevrolet Camaro debuts; turbo 4-cylinder available

After plenty of hinting and teasing, Chevrolet finally debuted the sixth-generation 2016 Camaro to media and owners in its home town Detroit. The new car looks a little sleeker, a little meaner than the outgoing model (indeed, it’s slightly smaller in all directions than the ’15 car), but there’s no question that this new car has not forgotten its roots ...

Review: 2015 Kia Soul EV Luxury

The proliferation of the electric vehicle continues to be a trending story on the interwebz and elsewhere, and for good reason.  They’re starting to make more sense, what with the emergence of more charging stations, better range rating and above all, more options: not only does it provide more variety of choice for the consumer, but it helps make them ...

Review: 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost

So, Ford–or “OneFord” for the purposes of this review–wants to sell the Mustang overseas. Indeed, we North Americans are finally seeing the arrival of cool Euro-centric hatches like the Fiesta ST (and soon, the Focus RS)—all thanks to the globalization of Ford. The Blue Oval wants to get the most mileage out of every model, meaning they need to be ...
