Devon Maloney is a freelance culture journalist, feminist, and sort-of-apologetic GIFtimist hailing from sunny El Segundo, California (no, she didn’t leave her wallet there, but you’re definitely the first person to ask!). Most recently, she held the position of News Editor at SPIN.com; you can tell because they put a picture of her on there (the bylines might also have been a giveaway).
Currently, Devon’s name is burrowed deep in the CMS depths of sites like Rolling Stone, VICE, Noisey, the Village Voice, and Tumblr’s Storyboard, as well as within the ink-stained pages of the Boston Phoenix (her entire body of outlets and clips is located here). Before that, she was the News Editor at SPIN.com, and before that, you might’ve seen her work (or not, most likely) on the late, great Billboard Pro, where she worked as Assistant Editor and then sitting Editor. She also has written for both of the other Billboard sites, and for Billboard magazine.
She likes people to know graduated magna cum laude in December 2010 from Boston University’s College of Communication with a degree in journalism and sociology, and as a result hopes to pursue a
career life that challenges her to be as clever, creative, and helpful as possible. She has a tendency to type in all caps, and, unfortunately for the reputation of her demographic, lives in Brooklyn.
