I thought it would be cool to be one of the guys that could write for the magazines, but that’s a job that only like 4 people in the world have. I bounced around from car job to car job. I started a driving club. I owned a car wash. I learned my way around the business by doing. I decided when YouTube launched in 2006 that we should make videos of the drives. That was my first foray into making videos with my partner Tom Morningstar. That turned into me getting an actual job at this very early multi-channel network. They hired me to make a show based on cars because of what we did in our silly little videos. That’s something that will never happen again in history. I got lucky because I wasn’t very good at making videos but someone was willing to pay me for my time to do it. We wanted to continue making videos and so Tom and I moved to California where we could make videos year-round without weather issues. We started The Smoking Tire in 2009.
