A Word from Andy
Automotive has always been my passion in life, and I’ve been writing professionally since 1999. I’ve been able to combine my automotive passion and communications ability to be a freelance writer for many years, and have been able to write for a wide variety of publications.
I started writing for the University of Wisconsin- Stout’s student newspaper, The Stoutonia, back in 1999. I then determined that I wanted to make a career of writing, specifically in automotive. I was able to bag an Assistant Editor position with Scale Auto magazine in 2001, and I’ve never stopped writing.
Personal Interests: Automotive, travel, beer/wine/spirits, music
