CLIENT LISTING . . .                                Last Updated: March 3, 2009





The Driver Magazine is a bi-monthly publication that both informs and entertains Canadian drivers on the issues they face on this country’s highways and byways. I have contributed between 1 and 5 articles to every issue of The Driver beginning with the Mar-Apr 2005 issue.

  • Since March of 2006 I have been the The Driver Magazine’s Official Copyeditor responsible for ongoing website maintenance as well as copyediting and proofreading each new issue before it goes to press.
  • Since September of 2006 I have been the The Driver Magazine’s Assistant Editor and have represented The Driver at various local events including being a Judge at the inaugural Car Show at the Tournament of Champions in Caledon, Ontario.
  • Since January of 2007 I have been the Editor of the Toronto Used Car Newspaper, a groundbreaking new publication from The Driver Inc. that cleverly combines the functions of a used car ad-sheet with an informative auto magazine.
  • Since September of 2007 I have been the Editor of The Driver Magazine, responsible for setting the theme of each issue, originating and assigning topic ideas to the other writers, and writing the Editorial which leads off every issue.
  • NEW - In October of 2008 I resigned my position as Editor so that the publisher of The Driver will be free to shift the magazine to a more sales-oriented, corporate focus. I will continue to provide The Driver with feature articles upon request.
