Before joining Tech Lapse, he was a Staff Writer at MakeUseOf where he mainly wrote about Apple products (macOS and iOS). Other than that, he’s also written content in the crypto and NFT space for various blogs and companies including Phemex.

His primary objective with writing at Tech Lapse is always to help people take more control of their online data and keep their presence on the web safe.
