Hi, I'm Scott Lamb

I currently work at Medium, where I'm the VP of Content.

I previously worked at BuzzFeed, where I started as a senior editor back in 2007 and went on to be editorial director, overseeing the team who popularized lists & quizzes. After a brief stint helping launch YouTube Nation in 2014, I was 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. You can always see more of my FASCINATING work history on LinkedIn.

In my past 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.

At the moment, I'm blogging over at scottlamb.blog which you can follow or sign up for emails over on ye olde Medium dot com.
