M.T. Blake is a writer mainly focusing on automotive journalism. He was born, raised, and currently lives in Northern California. He previously attended automotive school in an effort to become a mechanic, but near the end of a 2-1/2 year program, he left at the advice of all the back-broken mechanics in his life to go work in local government. His schooling never stopped, both in his personal journey with cars, and a formal education culminating in a MBA in 2016.
As a lifelong enthusiast obsessed with everything automotive, he began writing on Gawker Media's Oppositelock.com (RIP) about overpriced diesel trucks, car reviews on vacation, outstanding cars for sale, and his own personal journey with those cars in his evergrowing stable of cars - currently at 26 vehicles owned and one tractor!
This website was created out of an abundance of caution after the loss of Oppositelock, due to the fact nearly 80% of the articles posted there are gone forever. Once Oppo was placed on the chopping block, Blake started writing on DriveTribe. He was quickly - and luckily - picked up to the Creators Program where he currently posts the majority of his articles.
