About

Oh, look: Another way to find my work: roblef.contently.com

robfaceI write things on the internets, mostly about technology and video games, with a nice side dish of mobile game and book reviews.

I edit things on (and off!) the internets, too, though it’s tricky to show this off; editors rarely get the credit they deserve. I’ve got nothing but praise for the folks that have helped me present my best writing self and I strive to be that person for the writers I get to edit. I was the main Editor at 148Apps for a few years and have enjoyed watching all our writers grow into superstars.

I also do a little PR work; I got my first taste this past July and August with the pros at Stride PR. While I was unable to commit to a full-time position there due to my other freelance gigs and family responsibilities, I learned a lot and hope to be able to do more PR on a more freelance basis.

I’ve been working in the game/tech/writerly space, from the time I co-founded Games Are Evil and The Portable Gamer, through the time I was the Editor for 148Apps, and continuing on to Cult of Mac, Shelf Awareness, Chartboost, Folks, OpenStack, VentureBeat, Paste, and more.

Clicking through to the sites above will give you all of the writings I’ve done for each outlet; click on the sections themselves up top will give you a nicely curated list of some of my best/favorite work from each place.

I also do behind-the-scenes consulting for various gaming companies big and small, and have just begun editing novels for first-time authors.  Email me for details.
