Mike Sabounchi - Director of Audience Growth

While he has a deep love for Subarus (even though his is always broken), he’s contributed to building just about everything with four wheels. With previous experience sharpening his social media chops at Hoonigan, Super Street, Lowrider and European Car magazine, Mike is excited to dive into the Driving Line social media world. Oh, he’s also obsessed with pizza.

He’s been creating exciting automotive and motorcycle content since 2001 in titles like Hot Bike, Street Chopper, Baggers, Custom Classic Trucks, Honda Tuning, Car Audio, and Future automotive exploits include drag racing his Mach1 and continuing his search for vehicular oddities and excessive horsepower.

Kevin Aguilar

As the son of a Southern California street racer, Kevin quickly became addicted to custom vehicles during childhood. Making a start by tinkering with Hot Wheels, his passion was scaled up to modifying real-life trucks to sit low and go fast! Though most others keep themselves segmented, Kevin has an affinity for just about anything on wheels. During high school, he developed a taste for photography and now has over two-decades of experience in creating automotive content for industry-leading automotive magazines. He recently expanded his skill set to reach new audiences over multiple platforms including his social media outlets, @FuelishMedia. Always wanting to take a different spin on projects, he continues to push his visions and share them with the rest of the world.

Matt Moghaddam - Contributing Editor

Just a step down from obsessed, Matt’s passion for all things automotive stems from his roots in building muscle cars in high school. A short time later, he was introduced to the off-road world and hasn’t let off the throttle since. Matt has owned and built an array of 4x4s and prerunners and spends most of his free time either in the garage or off the grid. Photography and videography have also been a big part of his life, so he feels very fortunate to be able to blend his two passions together as part of the Driving Line team.

Tim Sutton

From an early age, Tim Sutton suspected that he saw the world differently. Criss-crossing the country each year in the family sedan, the passing scenery and cars etched themselves into his young mind. It took a serious car accident before Tim picked up a camera to study photography; realizing that his experiences from the frame of a backseat window. Now with an expansive list of successful collaborations with top auto makers and TV networks such as Toyota, Acura, Honda, Speed channel, FOX and more. Automobiles and visual expression have been the two constants in Tim’s life. Through the nuance and quality of his images, he consistently confirms his early suspicions – he clearly sees the world differently.

Alan Johnson

Telling the “short stories” of racing, adventure and travel from a “lower elevation," Alan (a.k.a. The Dusty Gnome) is a desert racer, writer, photographer, talker and observer. Based in Arizona, his work and play takes him all over the United States, UK and Mexico. Primarily focused on desert racing, Ultra4 and W.E.Rock, you can find The Dusty Gnome bouncing through the desert in his 83 Wagoneer, @gnome1.

Andrew Modena

"Car" might have been the first words out of his mouth. Andrew's lifelong fascination with cars has led to experiences such as: “off-roading” his parent's Accord, racing his turbo wagon at Willow Springs, daily driving a full-caged Time Attack car in college to being team photographer for a championship winning Formula Drift team. After attending his first KOH, he bought a Land Cruiser which continues to hemorrhage gas, oil and his bank account. Currently, Andrew enjoys searching for adventure on two or four wheels, on and off-road and scouring the internet for his next car(s).

Cory Mader

A childhood full of car posters, import magazines and discovering Formula Drift on G4TV back in middle school has fostered a love for the Japanese import scene in this bearded white guy from Georgia – but you can find nearly anything with a motor and wheels in front of his lens. As a recent transplant to California, Cory can be found taking full advantage of the local car scene and sunshine to photograph cars and automotive events nearly every weekend.

Doug Dienelt

After one rebellious off-road experience at the age of six in his Dad's 1984 2-door Chevy Blazer, Doug was hooked. He finally got to take the wheel in his own 1998 Toyota Tacoma and eventually discovered his love for photography amidst off-roading in the great outdoors. Now climbing to new heights while shooting his local T.R.E.C. series in Indiana and getting to as many Ultra4 races as he can swing.

Harry Wagner

Harry Wagner can't get enough of all things dirt. Raised in the back of his family's Land Cruiser, from a young age he cut his teeth on trails like the world famous Rubicon. The Land Cruiser had a lasting impression – much of his stable currently consists of Toyotas. Wagner currently calls Reno, Nevada, home, which makes a great base for everything from day trips to hot springs to desert races to some of the most fantastic rockcrawling the country has to offer. He has raced in the Baja 1000, made three trips to the famous Dakar Rally and makes regular pilgrimages to Johnson Valley, Moab, Las Cruces and the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Jacob Leveton has worked as a freelance journalist for 12 years, specializing in drifting since the first professional competition landed on U.S. shores in 2003. Leveton has worked with more than 30 print and online media outlets to provide unique drifting content.

Kyle Wells

Automotive addiction began for Kyle with a 1986 Toyota Pickup when he was 16. With that he found where the pavement met the dirt and never looked back. For him, it's not just the sound of the engine and capability of a well-built machine, but where that machine takes him – views and vistas otherwise unreachable. A love for the outdoors and mountains surrounding his Utah home turned his passion for photography into a full time job, and it's been filling his life with epic adventures and memories ever since. You can see more of Kyle's work at

Luke Munnell

Los Angeles-based automotive and motorsports photographer with an affinity for fast cars, vintage cameras, large-format film, landscape photography, fresh synthwave, good whiskey, great friends, and raw life. You can find him around the web at and as @lukemunnell.

Philip Cheng

As someone who gets way too excited about the smallest engineering details on anything automotive-related, Philip attributes his peculiarity to all the oil fumes inhaled from his oil-cooled 911 and the unhealthy amount of time spent on internet forums. A novice to the writing trade, he hopes to leverage his background in vintage imports to help Driving Line generate interesting and insightful content.

Tara Hurlin

Tara Hurlin is a car nut to the core. She feeds her addiction by attending as many car shows and motorsports events that she can fit into her schedule alongside her own personal projects in the garage: a custom 1961 Cadillac Series 62, 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata track car, 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee overland/expedition rig and her husband’s 1985 Chevrolet C10. Whether fast and furious or slow and curious, Tara has a love and appreciation for all vehicles. To exercise that love she enjoys wrenching, researching, writing articles and advancing in her automotive photography skills. Motorsports photography is her delectation.
