I'm a writer in the sense that I've been paid to write. I also happen to like writing, so it's a win-win.
I signed on to contribute a few pieces to Digg's "How To Be An Adult" practical advice column in August of 2016. As of October, I work as Digg's Sunday editor. In addition to helping curate Digg's front page and video page, I do review roundups and blog about odd stuff from around the web (ranging from neural network demos to Neil Cicierega's mashup albums.
In 2016 The Wirecutter had me write a guide on backpacks for college and high school students. That's even me in the photos, being a totally natural backpack model.
