Hi, I'm Andrew. I edit stuff.

I'm the Senior Editor, Security at WIRED. I've served as Gizmodo's Executive Editor (and several other kinds of editors), Politics Editor at the Daily Dot, Features Editor and Senior Reporter at Digital Trends, and Associate Editor at TheWeek.com. 

Some work I helped create won a 2024 Sigma Award; a 2023 Philip Meyer Journalism Award; the 2022 Edward R. Murrow National Award, Investigative Reporting; the 2022 NABJ Salute to Excellence Award; the 2022 Society of Professional Journalists New America Award; and the 2018 National Press Foundation Technology in Journalism Award. I also edited stories that earned finalist spots for the 2020 Gerald Loeb Award, Explanatory Journalism and the 2015 Digiday Publisher of the Year Award.

I live in New York's Hudson Valley where I have an unreasonable number of dogs, cats, chickens, and motorcycles.
