's profile

As EDN’s executive editor, I have a tremendous respect for engineers, makers, and electronics hobbyists. In the more than 10 years I’ve been with EDN (in some role or another), I’ve enjoyed the opportunities I’ve had to learn from and converse with interesting, intelligent, and outright funny engineers about the innovations that make the world go round. As an award-winning journalist, I manage several blogs and sections of and EDN’s e-newsletters including its daily newsletter, EDN Today, and EDN Fun Friday. I also head EDN’s social media and community efforts. Find me on Facebook and Twitter at: deffree.
