Managing Editor
After being laid off from his tech support job in the financial industry, Terrence decided to pursue his dream of working from home in his underwear. Through persistence and a lot of dumb luck, he eventually landed his first writing gig with the now defunct Switched. Since then he has continued to hone his craft while letting his more technical skills atrophy, eventually landing at Engadget. When not planted firmly in front of his laptop, Terrence can be found wandering the forests and mountains of the greater New York area with things strapped to his back that don't have an LCD screen.
