Formerly a technical writer, William has always aspired of one day becoming an automotive journalist. Fed up of occupying jobs that no longer stimulated him, he opened up a blog and started writing about his passion: cars. Over time, his blog, Clavey’s Corner, grew and became recognized across the country by important people in the industry. Over a period of two years, William Clavey has driven over 100 different cars.

He then started writing for Jalopnik, a controversial American car website, where he became known internationally for his humoristic and censor-free writing style. William is now a freelancer who collaborates to a wide variety of Canadian and American media outlets. Fluently bilingual in both English and French, he also actively collaborates to Québecois media outlets and has an active presence on the RPM television show.
