Who is Marcus Mears III?

At any given moment, you can find me reading the tech section of a news site or learning my new thing of the day. I’ve known I wanted to be a writer since I was a kid (and an Editor since I started my career in media), so I linked my professional life up with my passions to produce content for the internet.

I studied Computer Science in college, where I learned how our PCs and the web ticks – I use this knowledge today to better understand and implement SEO in my work.

While my main area of focus is Consumer Devices & Software (tech), feel free to ask me about writing or editing for other topics!
