Experience

Back in 2011, I finished up school in Missouri and shipped off to be a sports intern at Complex Media, where I was able to interview some of the top athletes in the world, including those in action sports and motorsports. When I had the opportunity to run the website’s Rides section, I took control and haven’t looked back. I’ve since been an editor at Bold Ride (RIP), Autoblog, and Car and Driver, and have also contributed to Hagerty, RideApart, Forbes Wheels, and Internet Brands Automotive. I haven’t owned a ton of cars, but I’ve loved every single one. I started with a Saturn SC2 coupe with the flip-up headlights and learned to drive stick on an Acura Integra GS. I’ve also owned a Honda Elite moped, a Suzuki SV650, and a V6 Chevrolet Camaro. My dad taught me everything I know in the garage, and I’m currently working on restoring a 1970 Opel GT with him.

Education

I attended the University of Missouri and majored in journalism, with an emphasis on magazine journalism. I was much more interested in my sociology classes, though, so I minored in that, as well.

Fun Fact/Tip/Anecdote/Favorite Product

I’ve always dreamt of owning a motorcycle and finally achieved that goal when I lived in Los Angeles for a couple of years. Unfortunately, somebody hit me and the Suzuki was totaled, but I hope to restart the journey in 2022 with a new two-wheeler.
