AARON RICHARD­SON

Richard­son grew up lov­ing cars but switched al­le­giances to two wheels in col­lege. A de­cent rider and a bad me­chanic, Richard­son penned our story on Shinji Kazama on page 42 as well as an ode to the bonds formed by me­chan­i­cal en­tropy on page 98. In the real world, he’s the ed­i­tor of a daily news­pa­per in Char­lottesville, Vir­ginia.

NATHANIEL WILDER

A life­long Alaskan based in An­chor­age, Nathaniel spe­cial­izes in out­door life­style pho­tog­ra­phy with an em­pha­sis on the Arc­tic. He’s drawn to wide-open spa­ces with few peo­ple but in­ter­est­ing char­ac­ters—per­fect for our look at Mo­to­quest’s An­chor­age garage on page 65. He can be found cross­ing his fin­gers and await­ing a call from the Hells An­gels for a promised group photo shoot.

RYAN INZANA

Il­lus­tra­tor and comic artist Ryan Inzana’s work has been rec­og­nized by the So­ci­ety of Il­lus­tra­tors and Amer­i­can Il­lus­tra­tion, and his comics have been in­ducted into the Li­brary of Congress’ per­ma­nent col­lec­tion of art. A grad­u­ate of Pratt In­sti­tute, Inzana has lec­tured at the School of Vis­ual Arts and Par­sons School of De­sign. In this is­sue, Inzana il­lus­trated Mega­phone on page 98.

NATHAN MAY

Pho­tog­ra­pher and film­maker Nathan May is al­ways down for a moto ad­ven­ture. From nav­i­gat­ing LA traf­fic on his Tri­umph Thrux­ton to rac­ing across the desert on his Husky FX 350, if it has two wheels, he’s in­ter­ested. In this is­sue, May ac­com­pa­nied Abhi Eswarappa into the bow­els of the Earth for “Risk & Re­ward” on page 56.

THAD WOLFF

For decades, Wolff was a go-to photo model for mag­a­zines and man­u­fac­tur­ers. It’s an anony­mous job: show up, look good, don’t break things. But Wolff’s ride to our pages was a wild one. We turn the ta­bles and spot­light the for­mer racer while he re­stores the Suzuki su­per­bike he used to ha­rass a gen­er­a­tion of rac­ing stars on page 82.
