Making everyday a good day to DIY hard or DIY tryin’, live and in 360
Only have a paperciip and some duct tape to save the world you say? They don’t call me Gearhead Diva for nothing!
Hi, I’m Rachel and thank you for…
“I’M SORRY… WHO?”
Oh, that’s how it’s going to be? Okay. Here’s the story:
It all started with an automotive Youtube channel called Gearhead Diva where I did everything from basic repairs to mods and restorations. It was a great outlet to explore storytelling and video production outside my usual digital ad agency work. Plus, I missed building things with my hands IRL.
I was having fun, being myself and always trying out new ways to change up the how-to format to bridge the gap between the screen and the fans. What started as a hobby to document my wrenchventures turned into an active community channel that led to an automotive tv hosting career on “All Girls Garage” on the Motor Trend network. Hosting and writing for “All Girls Garage” for 4 years, currently appearing on a variety of news segments as an auto expert and home DIYer, and working as producer, development and host for tv a digital projects in home, auto, science, tech and pop culture are a few of my favorite professional accomplishments.
With a passion for telling stories through my hands, I enjoy working on everything from classic cars to home renovation projects and even hacking the latest gadgets. As a result, I’m able to connect with audiences in a authentic and relatable manner through personal stories, lessons learned, and practical tips and advice not found on any script.
My enthusiastic, credible and humorous presentation style is a result of my fondness from the stories behind every brand.
Transitioning from being in front of the camera to behind it, my work as a producer and content director has become one of my biggest passions and I launched Wonder Spawn to push the boundaries of DIY lifestyle programming by enhancing linear TV programs with digital content campaigns, live streams and immersive 360 video experiences.
