Chris Higgins

I’m a writer based in Portland, Oregon. Most recently I wrote The Blogger Abides, an ebook about freelancing — how I make a (very modest) living as a writer. I also write for Mental Floss, The Atlantic, This American Life, The Magazine, The Portland Mercury, and lots of others.

In a previous tech-career life, I helped create Peekaboo Barn, Peekaboo Wild, Big Fat Lies, Life in Short, Cocktail Compass, Nick Jr.’s A-Z With Moose and Zee, Quibble, Savage Love, and a bunch of other apps and mobile websites.

In my copious spare time, I enjoy photography, amateur home repair, and writing “About” pages.
