Hey there! I'm Craig and I write fresh editorial content for iFixit’s home page, such as:

In general, I inform readers about repair-related happenings, as well as explain the wonderful world of fixing things while spouting off the occasional opinion. I also write the occasional repair guide and teardown when my creative juices are really flowing.

I've been writing about technology for over ten years, starting out as a writer and columnist in college for the student newspaper, eventually overseeing the publication’s web content and earning a spot as an Online Pacemaker Award finalist from the Associated Collegiate Press in 2011.

Before iFixit, I wrote for a handful of other websites, including Lifehacker, Digital Trends, and How-To Geek. My love of tech and repair goes back to my adolescent years, however, when I began tinkering with the family computer as a young and naive teenager.

I love getting my hands dirty with projects around the house and in the garage, and I'm a strong advocate for the DIY movement. In other words, I don't call a guy when something breaks; I am the guy! And I always encourage others to pick up some tools and take matters into their own hands.
