illo by Angie Wang

I'm a freelance culture journalist focused on games, emerging/weird tech, and internet culture. A few recent bylines include Wired, The Verge, Engadget, Ars Technica, Kotaku, Polygon, USgamer, SCMP, Dazed Digital, and VICE. I'm currently based in Singapore, and in a non-pandemic blighted year, usually do a good bit of traveling. 

Soft spots include internet archaeology, science fiction, comics, boxing, and old games. In past lives, I've been a music journalist, small business owner, and professional TV watcher. 

In 2013, I completed an MFA in Writing, focusing on creative nonfiction, sequential and interactive writing. I've worked on narrative elements and dialogue for Microsoft/SCAD and Disney.

I also do travel/lifestyle editorial, market research, and copyediting. If you're interested in commissioning me for travel/lifestyle work, please reach out for a separate portfolio.

Available for freelance and contract work (or, if you want, you can buy me a coffee).
