To the Curious Websurfer:
Hello! I’m Devon Maloney, a freelance culture journalist, feminist, and GIF apologist hailing from sunny El Segundo, California (no, I didn’t leave my wallet there, but you’re definitely the first person to ask!). I’m a contributor to such publications as Wired, Pitchfork, the Village Voice, MTV Hive, Grantland, Rolling Stone, Billboard, and VICE/Noisey, and I am an editor-for-hire (so email me for rates and availability).
In the past, I’ve held the position of News Editor at SPIN and as Assistant Editor (then sitting Editor) at the late, great Billboard Pro; I was also the indie/DIY correspondent for both of the other Billboard sites, as well as Billboard magazine. I continue to hold the position of Editor-in-Chief and sole proprietor of my personal Tumblr.
My ludicrous student loan debt is the result of a magna cum laude degree in journalism and sociology from Boston University; I’ve been led by these shenanigans to believe that pursuing a
career life that challenges me to be as creative, entertaining, multi-tasking and ultimately useful as possible is, well, possible. I occasionally read the comments section, have a tendency to type in all caps, and, unfortunately for my demographic’s reputation, live in Brooklyn.
