I'm a writer who focuses on the privacy and security of consumer products. Currently, I'm a lead editor of privacy and security for The New York Times-owned product review site, Wirecutter. I also write short fiction here.

Before Wirecutter, I was a Senior Writer for the how-to site Lifehacker, where I wrote about security, Apple products, the Raspberry Pi, productivity, and more.

My book, Idiot's Guides: Raspberry Pi was released in 2015 and provides an introduction to the popular $35 computer.

My writing has also appeared in a variety of publications, including the Onion A.V. Club, Touch Arcade, and How Stuff Works. Various articles have also been featured on NBC News, NPR, Business Insider, The Huffington Post, and others.
