Steven Ewing has had a life-long love for all things automotive. In addition to having several relatives employed by various automakers, Ewing was exposed to the inner-workings of the automotive media at a young age. After getting his foot in the door as an intern at Automobile magazine, Ewing spent four years at Winding Road before joining the Autoblog team in early 2010. Steven is a proud resident of the city of Detroit, and though cars are his true passion, he also enjoys playing the drums, traveling, being hilarious (and modest), and eating brunch.
