Tim Stevens

Tim Stevens has been called the Nicest Guy in Tech by Fortune, and has roamed the spaces covering both technology and automotive for almost 20 years. These days, he spends his precious free time cycling along tranquil roads in upstate New York, but is most commonly found drifting around a track in a loaned supercar.

So you started your career in programming? What’s the code you’re most proud of?

I’ve always been fascinated by computers, and through code you can make them do almost anything you want. It’s a little like casting a magic spell -- a very long, very ornery magic spell. I’m most proud of my work on Sega’s VMU. It was a tiny little gaming handheld that connected to the Dreamcast. I managed to get the developer kit when I was in college and wrote what I think was the only two-player VMU game, a sort of Pong where the ball traveled vertically from one player’s screen to the other. It took months and hundreds of pages of incredibly low-level code to pull off.

What triggered the change from programming to editorial? Any tips for others looking to pivot their careers?

As much as I love coding, as I progressed up the ladder to software designer and then to architect, the money got better but the fulfilment went down in a big way. Through all that time I’d kept up with freelance writing on the side, evenings and weekends, just to stick with it. Eventually, I started writing for big enough outlets that I could think about cutting back on the programming and focus on the journalism. Eventually, I was able to switch over to full-time editorial.For me, making the switch was relatively easy because I was able to do it gradually. The hard part was holding down two (or more) jobs for years and years to get to that point. I realize not everyone can do that, but if you’re thinking about making a big switch, do everything you can to find the parallels between what you’re doing now and what you hope to be doing soon. Ultimately, it’s your passion and dedication that make you a great employee, more so than your specific experience.

I’ve heard you’re ace on the ice, and I’m not talking about skates. Where’d you learn to ice race?

Yes, I’ve been ice racing for… maybe six years now? I started off rallycrossing my Subaru WRX over a decade ago and at one of those events someone told me “Man, if you like this, you need to try ice racing.” That next winter I just went out and tried it and was terrible but still I was immediately hooked.It’s difficult to really explain the technique required for ice racing, but it’s all about feel and finesse and, sometimes, patience. It takes you a good season or so to really start to figure things out, but in my opinion it’s the most fun you can have in a car. Pushing 100 mph on ice less than a foot from another car, while sliding sideways, is an incredible rush and a huge test of skill.


You turned your passion for cars into a career when you helped launch Roadshow. What’s most exciting about starting something new, and what’s ahead for the property?

Launching something new like Roadshow is a big challenge, but for me I love putting together a great team full of incredible people. Find the right people and put them in the right situation and that’s when the magic starts to happen.For Roadshow, we’re primarily focused on the intersection of the technology and automotive spaces, but we pride ourselves in delivering beautiful video and photos of the world’s most impressive cars. Look for some stunning sheetmetal on our site soon.

Cars are in an interesting era. Are you worried about the art of driving being lost as we move towards a self-driving future?

Yes and no. On one hand, there is simple joy to be found in driving yourself somewhere you need to go, but by and large, most of the time spent commuting is drudgery that anyone would gladly replace with leisure time, nap time, or even work time. So, beyond the incredibly important safety aspects, autonomy will mean a massive quality of life improvement for a lot of people.But, there will still be people like myself who want to drive, and I don’t think we have to worry about that going away. Yes, places like NYC or Downtown SF may ban human-driven cars someday, but there’ll always be somewhere to go and get your driving kicks.

You’ve covered both technology and automotive; how has the former become an essential part of the latter?

Technology has always been a part of automotive in some way or another, but as soon as smartphones and tablets took over consumer electronics, it immediately became clear that car interiors were way, way behind the curve. Now, interior designs are hugely influenced by Android and iOS, and in some places completely supplanted by them. A lot of people wouldn’t imagine going somewhere without their smartphones, and the name of the game in automotive interior design right now is giving you as much power over your digital lifestyle as possible while keeping you safe.

You’re pretty big on cycling. Give us a glimpse at your ideal ride.

I’m lucky enough to live in a rural area with some great roads. For me, a perfect ride is a chilly morning with the sun just coming up, too early for there to be much traffic, so it’s just me on a ribbon of asphalt cutting through pastures full of cows.

What’s ahead for you? Any new projects on the horizon?

After spending so long and working so hard to get here, right now I’m thrilled to be able to call myself an automotive journalist and I don’t plan on making any big departures for quite some time. But, I am working hard to try and get some of my fiction out there. The publishing world is a bit of a mess right now, but with a little luck hopefully I’ll break through one of these days. 

Give us a peek into your bucket list. What are a few places you want to visit or personal goals you’re striving for?

I’ve been really lucky to already go to so many incredible places and do so many phenomenal things that I could have never dreamed of as a kid growing up in Vermont. But, I’m always striving for more. Top location on my bucket list right now is the Isle of Man to see the TT motorcycle race in-person, and top personal goal is to get a novel published. Some day...

What’s your impression of your Wool&Prince shirts?

I was immediately impressed by the feel and quality of the Wool&Prince shirts. I’m sorry to say I’ve spent more on other dress and casual shirts from various retailers that just don’t compare. They also fit me perfectly and shrug off wrinkles, so I look as good as possible even when I’m climbing out of my third flight of the day.
