About Me


Doug DeMuro is a critically acclaimed writer, in the sense that several Internet commenters have told him that he “writes good.”

Born in Denver, Colorado, DeMuro received an economics degree from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, a highly esteemed private university that recently un-followed him on Twitter (this is true). After graduation, he put his Economics degree to good use at Porsche’s North American corporate headquarters, where he quickly rose to become the youngest manager in the company’s history – a surprising fact, considering that he still doesn’t know how to create bullet points in a Word document. Eventually, he quit his job to become a writer, largely because it meant that he no longer had to wear pants.

DeMuro’s work has been featured in a multitude of magazine publications and websites, including AutoTrader.com, Jalopnik, and The Week. His book, Plays With Cars, has sold nearly 10,000 copies, and his YouTube channel received approximately 6 million views in 2014.

Today, you can find DeMuro in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he engages in a number of exciting pursuits, such as texting his friends instead of writing, cleaning his home instead of writing, and watching small insects on his floor instead of writing. Also, he wrote this entire thing in the third person.
