Paul Braren
Paul Braren

An IT Professional by day, Paul has a life-long passion for technology. Getting the most out of technology is not just his job, it’s his hobby, an active blogger since 2011 at his TinkerTry.com with over a million readers per year. His career spans 3 decades, and an integral part of his work has always been about risk reduction and efficiency. Once his 2006 Civic Hybrid reached the end of the road, the EV with highest safety and the lowest cost-per-mile was his pick for his road-warrior ways. The 2018 Tesla Model 3 Long Range AWD. You can guess what his wife bought when her 2005 Civic died, the ultimate short-commute vehicle, the 2020 Tesla Model 3 SR+. Paul has also an avid follower of the nascent EV industry, including all makes, and is an optimist about an increasingly sustainable outlook for humanity.

Paul @paulbraren has also been helping with some of the content in the EV Club of Connecticut’s tweets at @EVClubCT and videos on the YouTube Channel.
