Gideon Lichfield (he/him)

Global editorial director, Wired

Gideon Lichfield is the global editorial director of Wired, overseeing all its editions. He left the UK in 1998 and has mostly avoided the place since, living in Mexico City, Moscow, and Jerusalem before moving to the US. He has been editor-in-chief of MIT Technology Review, one of the founding editors at Quartz, and various things at The Economist. He collects languages, silver rings, and obscure cocktail ingredients. He studied physics and philosophy, which those who know him say explains a lot.
