Former Editor, Four Wheeler

About Me

I started wheeling pretty much the day I got my license, although pops would let me steer his VW camper off-road when I was a kid (I couldn't reach the pedals). After graduating college I worked at a 4 Wheel Parts store for two years until I was offered a job at Petersen's 4 Wheel & Off-Road. A year and six months later in September of 2000 I was made editor of Jp Magazine. I spent 1-month shy of 11 years at the head of Jp before I was boosted to the Four Wheeler high-chair. Hard for me to believe I've been doing this magazine stuff for nearly a decade and a half.
