Obsessed with cars from a very young age, Jarryd’s fondest memories are of sitting with motoring magazines for hours on end, poring over the details of whichever wheeled wonder took his fancy. As he got older, writing became an equally large passion, which nurtured a desire to become a motoring journalist. A misguided attempt at studying law saw him come to his senses, gaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and Communications Science. He has since worked at various publications writing about the automotive industry, politics, business and investing. A lover of old luxury sedans, he spends his spare time trawling the classifieds, searching for secondhand S-Classes, 7 Series and XJ Jags.
