Writing & Editing + Editorial & Brand Strategy + Media Management

Senior Editor / Managing Editor / Executive Editor / Editor-in-Chief
December 2010 to August 2018

In 2010 I joined Engadget, one of the world’s first and largest technology new sources, as a contributing writer. Within months of my first published article, I was promoted to senior editor before taking the helm of Distro, Engadget’s weekly tablet magazine.

In 2012 I took on the role of Managing Editor and in 2014 I was upgraded to Executive Editor. In 2017 I took the reins as Editor-in-Chief and oversaw the transformation of Engadget from an exhaustive aggregator of hardware news and reviews, into a multimedia powerhouse with 15 million-plus readers a month. I also managed a 24-hour news room with 40 employees spread across three continents.

In my seven years of management at Engadget, I ushered in an era of original storytelling; expanded our editorial purview beyond gadgets; initiated a brand redesign; conceptualized and executed a $500,000 grant program; and facilitated the publication’s push into video, social, and newsletters. Under my leadership, Engadget rebounded from a years-long traffic decline, hitting record audience numbers.
