Experience

Anita began writing about technology in 2013, during an editorial internship at Paste Magazine. During the internship, she primarily covered technology and science news, often focusing on new apps, gadgets, software updates and bugs, and the cultural effects of technological innovations.

Anita went on to work for Paste as a freelance writer, working on longer-form features and profiles about emerging technology trends and companies, as well as consumer tech reviews and list-style articles about the newest devices. 

In the years since her time at Paste, Anita also worked for her local public library system. She spent the majority of her time educating and helping customers troubleshoot their day-to-day personal tech concerns. In addition to helping her customers on a one-on-one basis, Anita also hosted educational programming, which included topics such as how to use e-Readers and tablets, an introduction to 3D printers, and introductions to simple robotics, featuring Lego WeDos and Lego Mindstorms.

My Gear

I currently use a 15.6-inch Lenovo ideapad S340 laptop running Windows 10. My mobile devices are an HTC Desire Android and a Google Pixel 4.

 

Education

Anita graduated from the University of Georgia in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. She received her journalism degree from the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication.
