A Word from Evan Williams
I’ve loved cars since before I could talk. Working as an engineering technologist gave me an even more thorough background in how they work and I transitioned that into a career blending my two passions.
I worked for more than five years designing and testing fiberglass piping for chemical processing, nuclear power plants, and emissions reduction projects at coal power plants. A lay-off gave me the time and ability to put more effort into writing, and it has taken off from there. I’m based in Nova Scotia, Canada, and have spent decades driving in some of the most demanding conditions in North America, with the last decade learning to evaluate cars, trucks, and SUVs.
My personal interests include dogs, jogging, hiking, running, cycling, kayaking, autocross, and track days.
