That Car Blog is run by David Anderson. David spent 13 years as an engineer in the semiconductor industry, before deciding that something had to be done about our current unsustainable system of moving people about. So, he left his job to get a Master of Environmental Management degree in Energy & Environment, focusing on transportation – specifically, vehicle powertrain electrification, with a focus on lithium-ion batteries. Over the past 15 years, he has taken auto-mechanics classes at his local community college, been involved with motorsports both at the amateur and professional levels, converted a Volvo 850 to an electric vehicle, and lost most of his hair. He reads a lot of car magazines, watches a lot of car races, and gets giddy when shopping for new tires.
