Truth be told, I interviewed at Motorcyclist a number of times, first with Art Friedman, then with Mitch Boehm. When I finally came on board in 2005, I couldn't have imagined what lay in store. Barely a year later, the company hired Group Editorial Director Alex Hearn, who promptly promoted me to Editor in Chief. Alex then hired his former art director, Darren Scott, and the two of them redesigned Motorcyclist to resemble the magazine they'd published in the UK, TWO. I remember Alex wondering why, on the rare occasion we printed foul language, we disguised it as @#$%. It took just one issue of us spelling those words out for him to understand why!
