PRODUCT DESIGN JUROR

You’ll hear this from every single motoring enthusiast and while it’s incredibly cliche, I grew up loving cars. I couldn’t get enough of them and knew I needed a career in the automotive industry.

The difference between me and the rest of the crowd was that at age 17 I created my first automotive website.

Several years later, my startup was sold to one of Australia’s leading automotive publications, CarAdvice.com. 

We went on to sell CarAdvice to Nine Entertainment Group in 2016 and exited that business in 2019 to start CarExpert.com.au.

Today CarExpert.com.au is one of Australia’s biggest automotive sites and YouTube channels.

With a degree in mechanical engineering and 20 years experience testing and writing about cars, along with building businesses, the automotive industry is something I’m never likely to give up.
