Joel Patel

Joel Patel is a Northern Virginia native that fell in love with cars at a young age when he began helping his dad fix them. Watching Top Gear reruns and asking the question "They're getting paid to do this?" led Joel to a degree in journalism. His work has been featured on Autoweek, Digital Trends, Autoblog, CarsDirect, U.S. News & World Report, and Right Foot Down. Outside of cars, Joel enjoys finding restaurants off the beaten path, trying new bourbons, and taking his pit bull on an adventure. You can find more of his work on his website, Man, Adventure, Wheels.
