Myriam Joire

Myriam Joire (aka. tnkgrl) 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’s the Managing Editor at Pocketnow, and the host of the Mobile Tech Podcast. She also advises companies on product and media strategy and speaks at conferences. In the past, she’s written for TechRadar, HotHardware, GeekSpin,  and other major publications. She splits her time between San Francisco, CA and Vancouver, BC.

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. You can reach her at and follow her on Twitter and Instagram at @tnkgrl.
