About me

Are you tired of sitting in traffic? Want to carve up some dirt? Or do you just want to feel the wind on your face as you cruise along effortlessly on your cool new electric ride?

If yes, then you are on the right website. I have a passion for electric personal vehicles and devices and am always looking for the next best thing. I guess you could say that I’m an EPV junkie!

As a kid, I worked hard to earn extra cash on the weekends by delivering newspapers around my neighborhood. And thanks to my Dad letting me take our mower, I managed to clinch a few jobs mowing my neighbor’s grass. My motivation? To buy myself an electric skateboard!

I was always so jealous when the local kids rode around the street on their electric skateboards and scooters. We weren’t poor, but my Mom and Dad always thought that electric ride-on ‘toys’ were just a passing craze. I knew that if wanted one for myself, I’d have to cough up the cash myself.

The second I saved up enough, I bought my very first electric scooter. I loved that thing. The feeling of freedom I got from riding it was something that I’ll never forget.

Ever since I’ve been hooked on everything electric. So much so, that I’ve become a bit of a self-proclaimed ‘expert’ in how electric vehicles work, how far they go, how they feel to ride, how they’re made, how their batteries perform etc.

Those memories mean I’m now a materials engineer – I’m in the business of processing, testing, and developing the materials that go into electric vehicles. Talk about a full circle!

So now (as a side gig) I love test riding, analyzing and reviewing as many rides as I can, and bringing the information to you. Manufacturers are generally happy to loan me their latest best thing for a test drive. And that’s cool with me.

However, special mention must be made about people researching electric rides for kids or people with special needs. Some rides can be dangerous, and I mean really dangerous! So when you are making any decisions, always keep safety in front of mind. My articles are designed to complement your own due diligence and research into the best product for your situation.

Enjoy my reviews and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me.
