  • He spent five years building and running a thriving mobile-technology space at New Atlas (formerly Gizmag).
  • Will has interviewed top technology executives and developers, and he's reviewed a long list of consumer gear. He loves presenting content in a way that's as clear, digestible, and visually engaging as possible.


Will Shanklin's career covering consumer technology in the media has included working at publications including TechRadar, Digital Trends, AppleInsider, Android Central, Geek, and HuffPost.
