The Team

Jimmy O’Keefe – Editor, Sunshine Coast

Jimmy joins the 4WD Touring Australia team with a long and successful background across outdoor titles, including the masthead of Surfing Life, where he oversaw the magazine, website and film unit.  
Over the years, this traveling editor and journalist has written for over 40 international titles and has built a reputation for authenticity in telling the great Australian stories.
The only thing Jimmy’s more passionate about than working on great magazines, is filling them with inspirational and functional content that keeps us all on the road, even when we’re at home.

Pat Williams – Assistant Editor, Sydney
Pat is 4WD Touring Australia’s Assistant Editor and resident fishing fanatic. He spends most weekends living out of his car somewhere on the New South Wales coast, and goes on an annual offroad fishing trip to Cape York.
He’s also backpacked around much of southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. Pat’s passion for coastal touring is infectious.
Tim Black – Designer, Gold Coast
Man of mystery, Tim left behind the world of surf mag publishing to go footloose and fancy-freelance with 4WD Touring Australia. His bag of tricks spans print design, digital and web design and motion graphics. Tim’s idea of a good road trip is a pair of dice, a fridge full of beer and a quiver of surfboards on the roof.

Adam Adler - Trackside Mechanic, Columnist, Melbourne
Qualified motor mechanic Adam Adler has spent half his life under the bonnet of a 4WD and has worked for some of the top accessory companies and workshops. He knows what it takes to get your vehicle out there and back home in one piece. He runs the online aftermarket store out of ADM Motors in Caulfield, VIC. He pens the column Trackside Mechanic and Ask the Expert each month for 4WD Touring Australia.
