My Photo


  • I'm a writer by trade, and a curmudgeon by design. My specialty is automotive, but I'll write about anything the editors want - and that has included cocktails, cooking, travel, celebrity interviews, and even the stuff that's shipped in plain brown wrappers.

    I'm interested in a lot of things: I collect fountain pens, books and tattoos; I love horse racing; and when I have some spare time I like to bake and garden. I also have opinions, which I'm not afraid to share, and that's what this blog is all about.

    For auto-related stuff, check out my car blog that's linked above. For everything else, here it is!
