My very first contact with a (non-motorized) two-wheeled vehicle was at the age of six when Grandpa gifted me a Pegas bike. I hopped onto it and quickly learned that two wheels were not enough. Back then, my family couldn't afford a car, so as the years passed by, my curiosity got the best of me – I stole my uncle's Daewoo Tico and taught myself how to handle four wheels.

That's when I first dipped my toes into the automotive world. Shortly after, I got my driving license and, a year later, I was the proud owner of a Volkswagen Golf IV. That car went through a lot, let me tell you. From moving furniture to transporting my pets across the country, it has seen it all. Naturally, those experiences left me, again, wanting more in terms of what a car can do. That's how I ended up at autoevolution.

As for writing, my passion kicked off in university. A double major in English and Chinese and a master's degree in East-Asian languages helped me translate various works from different fields such as medicine, linguistics, marketing, and others.

When I'm not writing about cars, tech, drones, or aircraft, you can catch me reading anything space related that I can get my hands on and snapping breathtaking nature pictures (or so they say).
