Last month, we posted a “Help Wanted” ad on the site. Our team has since doubled to six individuals. Previously, Gearbox Magazine was staffed by:
Kim Schuenman, who we interviewed in November 2009, and who ran GM Gearbox Magazine. We’re taking a page out of the GM playbook and shuttering that brand in favor of new, pursuit-oriented channels. Kim will be shifting gears to helm our new Diesel and Drag (racing) channels, both of which will be rolling out officially with the new year.
Dave Hymers, who runs EV Gearbox Magazine. Dave is introducing us to electric vehicle conversion projects around the world, which often feature some of the most amazing fabrication efforts. And, just like everyone on our team, Dave practices what he preaches. He’s built an EV gokart and is beginning his own EV conversion!
Our ad was answered by the following heroes.
Rob Douglas, who founded/owns/operates Mitsu-Media.com. Rob has been a sort of silent partner since the earliest days of Gearbox Magazine, helping us spread the word, generate interest, and brainstorm many of the ideas we’ve brought to market in the last year.
David “Nakazoto” Lovett answered the call from the far side of the world, stepping up to help us bring more stories from Japan! Dave also has a fantastic, 1967 Mitsubishi 360 van over there in Japan.
And then there’s me:
Brian Driggs, I’m the mad scientist who decided he wanted to hook up the jumper cables differently.
So there you have it! This is the Gearbox Magazine team going into 2011. We’re all looking forward to helping our gearhead friends around the world build high performance machines and high performance lives.
