Matt picked up his first press car in December of 1998—a beautiful brand new 1999 Mazda Protegé LX. He was promptly rear-ended by a beige Corolla (true story). He immediately accepted the challenge of informing car buyers the world over that there are alternatives to the Corolla. At over 40 million sold so far, it’s clear that he has failed in his endeavour.
Be that as it may, Matt has worked for the Automobile Protection Association (APA) and contributed to Protegez-Vous’ annual car guide, joined Auto123.com in 2004, moved on to Autonet.ca for a brief period of time only to be recalled to Auto123.com.
Today, he contributes to LC Media, Auto123.com and other outlets. He’s a standing Automobile Journalist Association of Canada Board member, a member of the International Motor Press Association (IMPA) and owns a yellow station wagon.
