tnkgrl (Myriam Joire) was born wearing combat boots and holding a keyboard; moments later she picked up a soldering iron. She’s been stomping, typing and hacking ever since. After spending years being a code-monkey in the video game industry, she joined Engadget as Senior Mobile Editor and later Pebble as Chief Evangelist. Today she advises founders and startups on their media and product strategy with a focus on evangelism and crowdfunding.
She’s been called a “personality” and a “pundit“, but despite being (in)ternet famous, she’s just a tomboy with a fondness for other queers, punks, nerds, and misbegotten social deviants. She’s based in San Francisco. You can reach her by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and follow her on Twitter as @tnkgrl.
