He left automotive journalism for a short stint with the the world’s largest investment-grade automotive auction house before contributing to Internet Brands Automotive starting in 2017. Mark spends time away from the keyboard attempting to wrestle extra power out of a 1.0-liter Fiesta, keeping dead brands alive by riding a Buell XB9S Lightning, and watching a copious amount of bad automotive television with his two dogs, Nismo and Maloo.
