Robert began writing on Fourspeed back when he was 18 and everyone told him to make a website and write about cars so they wouldn't have to hear him talk about them anymore (most notably Doug DeMuro and Nick Trott).

The origin of the name is Roberts family's 4-speed 1952 MG TD, a car owned first by his grandfather, next by his parents, and hopefully one day by him.

Robert wrote about cars for his college application and somehow was accepted to Swarthmore College for the class of 2019. 

Thank you in particular to Ron Tarver at Swarthmore College for his endless knowledge and guidance in photography and journalism.
