I’m an experienced technology journalist who has been rooting phones, building PCs, and teaching people how to use their gadgets for 10 years. I previously served as the editor-in-chief of Lifehacker and the editor-in-chief of How-To Geek. I currently write for numerous publications including the New York Times, Popular Science, PCMag, and IGN. My work has also appeared in Wired, Macworld, The Daily Beast, and Engadget, and my expertise has been featured in interviews in in GQ, NPR, Business Insider, and Playboy.
