I’ve covered car technology as a profession and passion for more than two decades. My goal as the president and founder of the C3 Group is to drive the conversation on the connected car and mobility in this rapidly evolving space through the C3 Report, the Connected Car Council and by bringing together top thought leaders from automotive, technology, research and policy at C3 events. Prior to launching C3, I served as senior technology editor at and executive editor of Road & Track Road Gear and editor of Car Audio and Electronics magazines. I’ve also written on the topic for Wired, Rolling Stone, Popular Mechanics and many other media outlets. In addition to testing more than 50 vehicles a year for a hands-on perspective on how technology is transforming today’s cars, I’m fascinated by how innovation is reshaping personal mobility to make transportation safer, more efficient and more enjoyable.
