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 New York City-based gentleman/rabble-rouser with a penchant for good debate and stylish caps. Oh, I’m also a Senior Editor at PC Magazine, a classic tech publication that pays me to write about video games, streaming services, and a bunch of other stuff you may or may not care about.

In my more-than-a-decade-long tech career, I’ve covered CES, 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. 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, E-Gear, Game Theory with Scott Steinberg, LaptopParenting, PC Magazine, Sync, Wise Bread, and WWE. I’ve written non-tech words for The Cask, FYE, and LifeStyler, too. I created and ran 2D-X, a video game and geek culture site, for five years. It was one of my proudest stretches.

When I’m not nerding out, you can find me at a bar sampling craft beer, mentoring, 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.
