Rachel is a writer whose specialties include gaming, tech, social media, and entertainment. She's written everything from hardware reviews to deep dives on gaming culture.
She started writing in 2013 after graduating UT Austin with her hometown newspaper, the Killeen Daily Herald. Her career in gaming journalism started there with a game review column called The Play Button, published on the Herald's website.
Following her time at the Herald, she wrote for MakeUseOf, and served as editor of the site's video game section. She later became a reporter for The Next Web, where she covered just about every aspect of consumer technology.
While at The Next Web, Rachel eventually took over the Basics section, a series of tutorials explaining all aspects of tech. Now she explains things for How-To Geek.
