Hi, I'm Scott Lamb

I work at BuzzFeed, where I started as a senior editor back in 2007. I've since been managing editor, then editorial director; since 2014, I've been in charge of expanding BuzzFeed's international footprint, and launched our offices in the U.K., Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, India, Canada, Mexico, Spain and Japan.

In my previous life as a journalist, I wrote for Salon.com, Der Spiegel, Details, LA Weekly, Intro, and the East Bay Express. In 2004, I was a Fulbright grant recipient in Berlin, and in 2003 I graduated from NYU's Cultural Reporting & Critism program.
