He is also a Publisher in his own right, his outlets focused on providing content for the business and automotive sector. His skills set lists experience as an advance driving instructor and he wears a rare hat of being an SAGMJ accredited vehicle performance tester.

He ranks consumer rights and road safety amongst his primary passions.
