I’m a personal technology columnist at The Wall Street Journal, covering consumer products and services from San Francisco.

Previously, I was a technology reporter at BuzzFeed News, and before that, I was the assistant editor of PopSugar Tech. I’ve spent the last seven years reviewing all kinds of consumer products, from phones to smart home tech.

My beat covers tech giants, and how their products and policies affect the lives of their consumers. I’ve written about Amazon’s fake review economy, how app developers secretly sell your location data, previously unreported security flaws, and why tech companies are all-in on the battle for your voice.

Have information or tips on a story that’s not getting covered, but should be? The best way to get in touch with me is Twitter. My DMs are open @nicnguyen.

You can also reach me via text on the encrypted chat service Signal at 415-943-0446.

When I’m not  at a computer, I’m probably outside swimming in unreasonably cold water, skiing, biking, or backpacking. Send me a note with your book, article, outdoors-ing, or Vietnamese food recommendations. I look forward to hearing from you!
