Hi, my name is Billy and this is my online writing portfolio. I write about music, film, sports, culture and cars.

There are articles driven by the love of driving. Driving fast, driving slow, driving well. There are also articles about travel, sports, and driving songs that you may not have heard yet.

I am currently a contributor at Art of Gears. You will find many of my articles there.

You can follow me on twitter and we can talk about punk rock, Kevin Smith movies, and the Attitude Era.

My story

I was born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia before moving to and living in the United States. I’ve called Melbourne, Australia home for the last 14 years. I learned to drive in a 1995 Daihatsu Feroza and spent most of my formative years behind the wheel of Izusu Panthers and Toyota Kijangs.

I currently drive a 2011 SSV Redline. It’s a manual.

For more than a decade I wrote about music, film, and culture and you will find a lot of that history engrained in the work you read here. Music and the open road are one and the same. You can read more about my online history as the editor of Sound the Sirens Magazine and The Marshalltown here.
