Daniel Rubino is the Editor in Chief of Windows Central. He has been writing about Microsoft since 2007, when the site first launched under WMExperts (and later Windows Phone Central). In 2010, he took over duties as editor-in-chief, moved to executive editor in 2020, and returned to editor-in-chief in 2022. In addition, he manages the staff, directs content, and is a YouTube personality, head reviewer, analyst, and podcast co-host. His interests include Windows, laptops, next-gen computing, and, for some reason, watches. He's been reviewing laptops since 2015 and is especially fond of 2-in-1 convertibles, ARM processors, new form factors, and thin-and-light PCs.
Before working on Windows Central, Daniel was a polysomnographer at Weill-Cornell Medical College and NY Presbyrtiaran in New York City, a movie theater projectionist for 17 years, Emergency Medical Technician in Connecticut, and was studying for a Ph.D. in linguistics in the neurology of language.
