Just a couple of dudes with mics and a passion for cars

Tall guy with loud voice and a nack for digital marketing

There’s something about the look, sound, smell, and feel of cars that positively flows through every fiber of my being.

From guessing the make and model by their tail lights as a kid, to recognizing a specific car from my couch as it downshifts past my apartment, cars have been my obsession for as long as I can remember.

After years of being an enthusiast, I met my counterpart Dane in 2018. We clicked instantly, and over time, turned our mutual passion into something more than just a hobby. And thus, Peak Torque Media was founded.

I can’t wait to invest more time in this project, and hope you enjoy cruising along with us for the ride. Cheers!

Hot and Humble.

I’ve been a life-long enthusiast of the automotive genre. Receiving my undergrad at the University of Arizona in Management Information Systems, I had the intent to work within an automotive organization providing supply chain assistance - I knew that I had to be professionally involved with cars in some way. I have a huge appreciation for the classics and the lineage or story of brands, from star players like the Porsche 930 Turbo to the future classic, the BMW E92 M3. I own all the equipment so it’s technically my show.

Current: 2012 Audi S4 - manual, black on black and the ideal daily driver
