Driving Line Welcomes Off-Road & Truck Editor Ali Mansour
My name is Ali Mansour (pronounced Ollie Mon-Sur in case you’re curious). I’ve worked professionally as a magazine editor since 2006 and held contributor and editor positions for such titles as Jp, Petersen’s 4-Wheel & Off-Road, Four Wheeler, 4Wheel Drive & Sport Utility, Diesel Power, along with a few others. Long before I was a magazine editor, I spent my nights and weekends with friends working on 4x4s and motorcycles. Going off-road with two- and four-wheeled machines has always been a major part of my life. The fact that I was able to turn my passion for the off-road hobby into a career is still something I still feel incredibly fortunate about today.
While I originally set off to be a GIS (Geographic Information Systems) major in college, my side interest in writing quickly became my focus. I’ve never considered myself much of a gambler, but opting out of the lab and into the field of journalism was a chance that paid off well for me in the end. While, I’ve never thought myself to be much of a brand loyalist, I have owned a fair amount of Jeep vehicles over the past ten years or so. I thoroughly enjoy building vehicles of all types and going on off-road adventures, so expect to see plenty of that from me!
