Senior Editor / Managing Editor / Executive Editor / Editor-in-Chief
December 2010 to August 2018
After two years in Bob Mizer’s beefcake archives, I took a hard left and joined Engadget, one of the worldâ€™s first and largest technology new sources. Within months of my first published article, I was promoted to senior editor before taking the helm of Distro, Engadgetâ€™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. In my seven years of management at Engadget, I ushered in an era of original storytelling; expanded our editorial purview beyond gadgets; conceptualized and executed a $500,000 grant program; and facilitated the publicationâ€™s push into video. Under my leadership as EiC, Engadget rebounded from a yearâ€™s long decline that resulted in record traffic.
