    Marc Stern

    Expert Writer/Photographer/Editor

    United States - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

    You name it, I've probably written about it as I have had a long career as a freelance writer/newspaper writer-editor where I was allowed to freelance as long as it didn't conflict with my primary jobs. As I was design editor and an assistant news editor, that was unlikely. I was named auto editor in 1971 and began writing a column on cars that ran for a total of 47 years in three different newspaper groups. I have driven (honestly) more than 4500 cars and have had about 12,000 stories published (likely more). I have had three covers on Popular Mechanics and one on Mechanix Illustrated and I was a contributing correspondent to Automotive News, AutoWeek, Trailer Life, Pickup, Van & Off-Road World and more. I am an a Boston Car and Ham Radio Examiner and I have done extensive content and SEO work. In addition, I write regularly for various outlets about cars where some consider me some sort of expert. I am also a consumer electronics writer and solid reviewer.
