Miles Branman

Miles Branman doesn't need sustenance — he needs cars. While the gearhead gene wasn't strong in his own family, Miles discovered a passion for cars from an early age thanks to a friend whose father collected rare and exotic vehicles. His enthusiasm was stoked during his time at Boston University when he started writing for Fast Lane Daily. After a short career in marketing for Northeast tech startups, Miles returned to California and his primary passion: automotive. He has built and raced a Spec Miata (because racecar), loves compact hatchbacks and supercars equally, and can recognize a vehicle from 1,000 feet away by its taillights.
