John Newlin

New York City, New York

I've worked in print and digital media my entire career (not counting a brief stint as a motorcycle messenger, which ended poorly). I joined Livingly Media in early 2008 as the founding editor-in-chief and employee #6. Before that I was one of the founding editors that launched and a few other web networks (both IGN and Livingly Media were acquired for a combined $675m). I co-wrote and sold a pilot to Comedy Central, was editor of an arts and entertainment Silicon Valley magazine, and worked on the early iteration of what would become Business2.0. I've written for Maxim, Stuff, Men's Journal, CNet and Details and have appeared on Howard Stern, Fox News, ABC's Good Morning America, and, in the name of journalism, infiltrated Showtime's Penn & Teller: Bullshit! as a "UFO expert."

Because I can’t decide which I love more, I try to split my time between Silicon Valley and New York City, but currently have a strong bias to NYC. I enjoy long walks on the beach, short walks on the beach, bawdy Twitter comediennes, Grand Prix motorcycle racing, sailing, video games, wine, guns, shoes, travel bags with lots of pockets, personal technology, and vintage Porsches.
