I have been reporting about the Chinese car market since 2003. I live in Beijing and travel to all the major auto shows in China. I also follow the commercial vehicle market and the booming new-energy vehicle segment. I am the founder and Editor in Chief of CarNewsChina.com, the leading portal for news, analysis, and information about the Chinese auto industry. Before going full time for cars I worked at the Dutch embassy in Beijing as an analyst on the Chinese economy and the defense sector. I drive a carefully maintained Beijing-Jeep Cherokee XJ.
