About me

Joel grew up in the 90's in a conservative immigrant family, so as a kid he was not exposed to the other cultures. Nevertheless, in his teen days, he found his passion for motorsports. In his late teens, he tried to get into motorsports but because of lack of finance he never got his shot. This didn't stop him from following his passion. After getting his diploma in automotive, he worked as a race mechanic for a couple of years. Now he puts his passion to words, working as an automotive journalist for CarIndigo and in his spare time running a workshop out of his garage, working on his and his friends’ car.
