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.

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.
