Michael's story

I bought my dream SUV used and well priced in the fall of 2019 for my cross-country commuting. I travel the country and world selling Pokemon cards and other collectibles at conventions, tournaments of all sizes. 2019 came to an end and very abruptly the ability to travel ceased. While the collectibles industry took its own hit, we are still online and mostly by mail based. In the meantime, I began to research Turo the car-sharing platform, and what I could possibly do to offset this new SUV I didn't need for work. Within a few months, I felt comfortable to list my dream Toyota Highlander Hybrid 2017 and fell in love with the part-time gig of sharing my car and love for Toyotas and travel with like-minded health cautious individuals. I started on the Fourth of July and haven't looked back. I would really like to expand and add a third vehicle to host on Turo full time. I then qualified for the Turo Seed Initiative. This was a platform both Turo, Kiva and even Nissan all signed on for to empower underserved communities to take the wheel of their financial future. That is my hope here and I can't wait to share it with you and future guests in Atlanta, GA!
