Terrence O’Brien

Deputy Managing Editor

After being laid off from his tech support job in the financial industry, Terrence decided to pursue his dream of working from home in his underwear. Through a lot of dumb luck and marathon sessions of cruising Craigslist, he eventually landed his first writing gig with the now defunct (but never forgotten) Switched. Since then he has continued to hone his craft while letting his more technical skills atrophy, eventually landing at Engadget where he helps guide an international team of reporters through the chaotic world of tech news. When not planted firmly in front of his laptop, Terrence can be found wandering the forests and mountains of the greater New York area with things strapped to his back that don’t have an LCD screen.
