Devon Maloney is a journalist, critic, and general wordmonger exploring how pop culture shapes and is shaped by our everyday lives. Currently the internet culture editor at the Verge, her work has also appeared in WIRED, Vanity Fair, Cosmopolitan, New York, Marie Claire, Playboy, Pitchfork, Out, Grantland, T Magazine, the Guardian, the Village Voice, and VICE. She's an alumnus of Billboard, SPIN magazine, the Los Angeles Times, and Boston University's College of Communication, and is the occasional author of MalonEmail, a minimally invasive newsletter filled with recent work updates, reading/viewing recommendations, and copious GIFs.

A native of and relentless advocate for the city of Los Angeles, she currently lives in New York with a photogenic dog, a financially unwise number of books, and a handful of miserably under-watered succulents. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson thinks she's funny.
