Game Rant Features

Game Rant Features

Game Rant is an online publication dedicated to reporting news and features about video games and the gaming industry.

In December 2019 I was hired onto the site as a freelance News Writer, but starting in March 2020 I expanded my reach into the Features section as well. There I wrote longer-form articles more independent, informative, or opinionated as original content for the site.

In April 2020 I was hired on as a full-time Staff Writer at Game Rant, and in June 2020 I published my first full-scale video game review for the site.

In September 2020 I became an editor at the site, which led to my time being split between writing, editing, and more.
