Christopher Trout

Executive Editor
Before starting at Engadget, Christopher worked in a series of jobs that would make your mother blush. He’s since acted as Executive Editor of the award-winning digital magazine Distro, as well as Engadget.com. His column, Computer Love, explores the weird world of human sexuality in the 21st century. When he’s not writing about sex robots and VR porn, you can find him at the bottom of a martini glass.
