BA (Politics and Japanese Studies)
Motor Journalist

I received a BA, majoring in Politics and Japanese Studies, in 1987 and have been working in Japan ever since.

I work as a motor journalist, writing new car test drive reports, news stories and columns for publications including The Herald Sun and Motor Magazine in Australia, and several other car magazines in the US, UK, Germany and Italy. I contribute articles in Japanese to two local publications.

I am the co-chairman of the World Car of the Year Awards, which are announced at the New York International Auto Show each April.

I race a Mazda MX-5 in the local MX-5 one-make sprint series.
