Pleased To Meet You…

…glad you Googled my name.

I assume that you’ve come here seeking a little information on Jeffrey L. Wilson. Unfortunately, there are a lot of Jeffrey L. Wilsons on the Web, so I hope that I can help you learn about this one.

Let’s start from the top: I’m a Senior Software Analyst at PCMag, a classic tech publication that pays me to write about PC software, mobile apps, Web hosting services, video games, and digital comic books.  In my decade-long tech career, I’ve covered E3, Macworld, New York Comic Con, PAX East, Special Edition: NYC, WonderCon, and other nerd-events because, well, I’m a big ol’ geek. I’ve also appeared on TV, panels, and podcasts to discuss the intersection of tech and culture. Oh, I’ve created a convention panel or two.

I was a geek before I recognized that I was a geek. I built model airplanes, robots, and even attempted to construct a rudimentary computer from a metal Band-Aid case and rubber bands. Hey, I was six years old and didn’t have a functional understanding of technology. According to the lovely, wise internet denizens, I still don’t.

Still, my love for all things shiny and digital—despite such obvious technological shortcomings—led to jobs penning gadget- and video game-related nerd-copy for 1UP, 2D-XE-Gear, Game Theory with Scott Steinberg, LaptopParenting, PC Magazine, Sync, Wise Bread, and WWE. I’ve written non-tech words for LifeStyler and The Cask, too.

When I’m not nerding out, you can find me at a bar sampling foreign beers, listening to music, blabbing about this or that on social media networks, or creating neo-noir comic book scripts. Okay, that last one’s a little nerdy.

I’m a Brooklyn College graduate with a B.A. in English Literature. But I wasn’t cool enough to play the steps in front of Boylan Hall.
