Alex Dobie, Executive Editor, U.K.
Alex cooks up steaming bowls of European coverage for Android Central on a daily basis. Fueled by caffeine, a love of tech and a mortal fear of natural light, Alex operates our European desk from a dungeon somewhere in Manchester, England.
Andrew Martonik, Executive Editor, U.S.A.
Andrew Martonik helms American coverage for Android Central, including a heaping helping of Samsung, Pixel, and more. He's been tinkering with computers, PDAs (remember those?), gadgets and phones his whole life. Living in Seattle, Andrew enjoys his Starbucks coffee and Sounders FC soccer matches as much as anything else.

Jerry Hildenbrand, Senior Editor
Linux Professional, aging hippie and recovering engineer. Editor in charge of touching things until they break, trying to figure stuff out, and talking about Android. I think the black jelly beans are the best and wear sneakers I bought in 1996. I'm also the Mobile Nations Senior Editor of excellent headgear.
Russell Holly, Senior Editor
Based in Baltimore, Md., Russell's journey into writing started shortly after picking up an HTC G1. When not making words happen on the Internet, Russell can be found running through a field with a sword, playing getting shot at on his Xbox One, or getting schooled by his spouse in comic books.

Florence Ion, Senior Editor
lorence Ion's love for Android knows no bounds. She's been a loyal user of the operating system since 2010, except for those six months she strayed in an effort to diversify her experiences. She's a senior editor at Android Central, with a focus on managing AC's growing social communities and making Android more accessible to its billion-plus users around the world.
When she's not furiously writing about her time with her many Android devices, she's on her yoga mat attempting to zen away from technology. You can hear her musings periodically on the Android Central podcast and every Tuesday evening on Twit.TV's All About Android.
Jen Karner, Writer
When she's not swinging swords and firing arrows (no, we're not kidding) Maryland-based Jen Karner is focused on all things Android. Whether it's running from digital zombies to get the highest score in a fitness app, loading up on AOE spells for whatever RPG game has crossed her desk this week, or slipping mindlessly into a connect four or gem pairing game, Jen's fingers are almost always touching a phone. Or a watch. Or a gamepad.

Ara Wagoner, Writer
Born and raised just outside Austin, Texas, Ara Wagoner dove into Android in 2011 when she bought her Samsung Captivate Glide, which she named Soarin after the Disney ride. She loves Disney so much, she went on not one but two Disney College Programs to go work — and play — in paradise. When she's not checking out new Android apps and Chromebooks, she's probably off indulging her fangirl tendencies.
Phil Nickinson, Editor Emeritus
Phil Nickinson served as editor-in-chief of Android Central from 2009 to 2016. In a previous life he spent more than a decade in the newsroom of a two-time Pulitzer finalist newspaper in his hometown of Pensacola, Fla. In addition to leading the effort of Modern Dad — he's got a gorgeous wife, two beautiful daughters, and a mutt named Max.
