About Tony Borroz

Tony Borroz is a prolific author currently living in parts unknown. Raised in the Pacific Northwest and educated across the world (in such far-flung exotic spots as Paris, Leningrad, Rome, Pullman, and Bellingham, Washington), he has written for aerospace companies, universities, newspapers, software firms, magazines, museums, and a staggering number of websites.

Raised in and around all things mechanical, Mr. Borroz has given voice to the technical developments of modern transportation, covered the automotive and transportation industries attentively, and has spent more time at race tracks across the world than any well balanced person should. Despite being educated and smart enough to know better, his body still bears the scars of owning British cars ("Okay, so it took me a while to learn to know better," he once said, firing up the ignition of his now thoroughly modern and reliable sports car).

In addition to being a writer well respected by several, no, dozens of people, Mr. Borroz is also a film aficionado, having worked in film and TV production from a young age and for decades. He willingly and openly consorts with artists of all sorts (painters, actors, sculptors, and the like), is a crack shot with a sniper rifle, has a deep and unending love of surfing (despite swimming "like an anchor"), spends far too much time reading about astronomy and cosmology, and sees nothing wrong with modern art but everything wrong with mixing plaids and stripes. Most recently, he entered into another jazz phase centered on anything West Coast cool.

His love of lunch in Paris is only surpassed by his desire for one more dinner in Rome, or a fantastic pancake breakfast in a remote logging community. He has no love for musicals, but is okay with ballet. He is a committed and ardent believer that cars should only be painted in their national colors. He is also just as committed and ardent in his belief that car racing is the only real sport, and all the others are just children’s games played by adults in costumes.

Tony Borroz would love to talk more, he really would, but he's on another deadline, so he really needs to get to writing. Also, his therapists all concur that he is "doing much better than we hoped for by this stage."
