Lance Nelson

Lance Nelson, Editor-in-Chief

When he isn’t test driving new vehicles under the alias "LanceTheDriver," you can find Lance Nelson proudly working on his journalism degree in San Diego. A proponent of taking the road less traveled, he relinquished what would have been his traditional college years to create an online platform that delivered automotive content to the LGBTQ+ community, traveling the world and working with dozens of automotive companies. Incorporating the ins and outs of his personal life, from his experience of being bullied as a child to the career aspirations that gave him a focus, he forged a connection with those that tuned in, and developed a passion for sharing experiences. He is always looking for the next adventure to further expand his view of the world, and his place in it. His educational plans include completing his AA in the spring of 2020 and transferring to The School of General Studies at Columbia University in New York. He will be majoring in human rights and continuing to pursue journalism in an effort to address issues facing marginalized communities.
