I’m Sarah and I’m a new writer at Gizmodo Australia (as well as Lifehacker and Kotaku.) In my 25 years on the planet, I’ve learnt a thing or two about life hacks and technology so I hope to be able to impart some of the wisdom I've picked up from the many, many dumb things I’ve done in life.
Before starting my role here, I worked in a bunch of writing roles. For two years, I was the Content Producer at Student Edge and I wrote about everything from a pseudo investigative report into who exactly was behind Australia’s fake space agency, ARSE, to going deep down the rabbit hole with cryptocurrencies. Prior to that, I wrote a few things for The BRAG and was the head honcho at my uni’s student magazine.
But, my time as writer hasn’t been without a good share of old-fashioned internet hate, which I love to tell people about...
I once legitimately referred to Sonic the Hedgehog as a 'speedy mouse' and had to issue an update and apology to all the stans I subsequently offended.
Among that and being written about by the anti-fan club on the “world's most viewed” blog on climate change denial, I’ve built up a bit of a resilience so feel free to @ me if you don't like my take on why paper plane throwing is legitimate sport.
Mostly, I’m excited to get started on filling up my Gizmodo portfolio with lots of interesting tech news and potentially questionable product reviews, so see you around!
