Kris Wouk

Copy Editor, Copywriter, Editor, Videographer, Writer

Writer with a strong technology background and some audio/video chops.

From 2012 through 2013, I wrote short news posts as well as lengthier mobile phone reviews and how-to pieces for Android Authority. Following this, I moved to Android Authority sister site Sound Guys to write similar posts around home audio gear like headphones and Bluetooth speakers. I contributed 1000+ word articles as well as video content for the site through 2016. In 2015 I began freelancing for Digital Trends, starting with 300-500 word news pieces, before moving exclusively to their A/V team for news, longer features, and reviews.
