Hi, I’m Shannon L. Flynn. I’m a full-time business technology & entertainment journalist with more than five years of experience writing in the technology industry.

I’m a staff writer at MakeUseOf and Lifehacker, and am currently the Managing Editor of ReHack Magazine. Over the past few years, I’ve contributed to a number of online publications such as Hackernoon, EdTech Magazine, GamesRadar, SiliconANGLE’s The Cube, ReadWrite, Fansided, Lifewire and more.

Starting as a casual technology hoarder, I developed a love for all things tech and continue to learn and appreciate the ins and outs of the industry. I love decoding security jargon, explaining business processes and tinkering with popular tech devices.

When I’m not writing, you can find me playing video games, watching my favorite Twitch streamers, and lounging with a good book (most likely a Mac).

If you’d like to hire me or request a quote, please contact me at or send me a message on LinkedIn.
