Timothy J. Seppala



Before joining Engadget, Timothy spent half a decade freelancing for all manner of outlets writing about all sorts of (mostly video game-related) things. Timothy’s an A/V enthusiast who adores physical media, much to the chagrin of his available shelf space. He loves music by Amon Tobin, Run the Jewels and the Deftones most of all. Oh, and he has a hard time not buying all the overpriced Calvin and Hobbes stuff on Etsy.
