David Bethune was hooked on the automotive enthusiast lifestyle at an early age. With the engineering background of his family, David was always encouraged to tinker on anything mechanical he could get his hands on. In the early 90's, he became entrenched in the local Southern California car culture, spending many late nights at the street races, and when not at school, working hard to pay for his next automotive upgrade. Studying Business Finance in College, David's passion for the automotive world only grew with each passing year. Attending and participating in various automotive events only fueled his thirst for all things automotive, and through the development of friends and colleagues that share similar interests, his love for the automotive lifestyle is forever solidified. Because of David's love for modified cars, a few of his favorite examples that he would love to have in his stable are the Veilside Fortune Mazda RX7, the R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-spec II, with the ultimate car being the Koenigsegg Agera R.

Entrenched in the automotive community at a young age, he began shooting cars with his Nikon D3000 DSLR camera, which he eventually upgraded to the Nikon D5200 and a diverse arsenal of lenses to suit any occasion. His Photoshop wizardry is unsurpassed, but like a master sensei, it took years and arduous training and discipline to develop.

Matthew Sitachitt is an automotive enthusiast just like you, and has always been since the dawn of his existence or possibly shortly after. Matt grew up in the Southern California area and has resided in both San Diego, and Orange County while attending the UC Irvine.
Matt's first car that caught his interest was a green four-door MK3 Volkswagen Golf. To Matt, it's not about the horsepower, the speed or even the sports car-like styling. What Matt looks for in a car is practicality, personality, perkiness, and a companion.
At the moment, Matt has his eyes on the new Audi S3 sedan. Audi's famous Quattro All-wheel drive system, an upgraded turbocharged 2.0-liter unit and six-speed DSG gearbox are the perfect attributes for a car to have in order to drive up to the local mountains for a ski weekend or a hiking adventure.
Being part of the CarVerse Team is pretty much a dream come true. He always wanted to be the guy who would be writing editorials about his favorite cars, and now that dream has come true.

Tim is a proper piston head, having loved cars since his teenage days not just for their form, but their function. Import, domestic, or high-end pasta rocket, Tim finds something interesting and unique about any car that he crosses. When not turning a wrench on his own turbo fun-toy, Tim can usually be found drooling over some new piece of technology or wondering if he needs another monitor on his desk.
