I originally created ZipRage back in 2005 as a competitor to traditional men’s magazines. The site grew and gained popularity, but the time I could devote to it shrunk thanks to school. In 2013, I relaunched the site as a more niche dedicated automotive blog. That went well for some time but it started to get stale, I wanted to write about things other than just cars again. So, I re-branded ZipRage into Gear & Grit.

Gear & Grit is devoted to all the gear and insights that empower my work, fitness, fatherhood and fun.

Aside from running Gear & Grit, I am a pharmacist working in value based care population health management and data analytics by day. My wife Elin keeps me in line and my two daughters Jane & Ruth keep me busy and fill my heart with joy.
