Portfolio – Autotropolis
I was a regular contributor to Autotropolis and had a column and several weekly features published on the site. The column was called Car Buying Review, and covered issues directly affecting buyers currently in the market for a new vehicle. I also wrote a feature focusing on the top Rebates and Incentives available to car shoppers, and regularly contributed news articles affecting those in the market for a new or used car. In my time with Autotropolis, I authored hundreds of Wiki entries covering the entire spectrum of automobile manufacturers and contributed news stories covering the industry and issues that affect car buyers, in addition to buying guides and general interest pieces. The following represent a small selection of articles and pieces I published through this resource.
*Note – Autotropolis was purchased by Autobytel in 2010. I moved to Autobytel’s editorial staff that same year.
