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, and now I'm in charge of expanding BuzzFeed's international footprint.

Previously, I've written for Salon.com, Der Spiegel, Details, LA Weekly, Intro, and the East Bay Express. In 2004, I was a Fulbright grant recipient in Berlin.
