I created the geek/nerd culture beat at CNN.com in 2010. What you’ll see on this page as you scroll down are my bylines, but I was also the producer of Geek Out! in CNN.com article and CNN.com blog form. I managed a team of contributors, edited their work and trained non-traditional staff to write and report.
These images of my bylines show off only my writing. Please click on the images to see the article on CNN.com and read the often robust conversations in the comments section. These comments sections show off the kind of reader engagement my articles inspired.
What we did between 2010 and 2013 was an earnest and legitimate take on nerd culture, as opposed to the “geek chic” bandwagon other media outlets hitched onto. I am extremely proud of what Geek Out! accomplished and how it paved the way for nerd-interest topics to be addressed in a mainstream manner by the rest of CNN.
