Greetings! I’m the brand-spanking new journalist for Lifehacker’s IT Pro section. I’ll be dedicated to bringing you news and advice across all things enterprise IT, plus pieces here and there for the Work and Life categories. But first, let me tell you a little about myself.
Yes, Spandas is my real name and yes, I am aware that if you remove “s” from my name it spells “panda” (I’m okay with this). Since you will be seeing my byline regularly on the site, I thought I’d take this opportunity to fill you in on who I am.
Fresh out of uni, I worked as a technology and video games journalist for four-and-a-half years writing for various publications including ARN, ZDNet and GamePro. I tried my hand at public relations for two years but I never really stopped being a journalist and you may have seen a few pieces I’ve contributed to Lifehacker in the past (here and here). I also covered E3 Expo this year for Kotaku.
Now I’m back doing what I do best — writing stories, which I hope will not only be informative but entertaining as well. I love video games, comic books, motorcycles and Brazilian jiujitsu, so I’ll try and bring you advice on those topics too.
I look forward to interacting with you all in the comments section. You can also find me on Twitter at @spandaslui.
