Alexia Tsotsis is the co-editor of TechCrunch. She attended the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA, majoring in Writing and Painting, and moved to New York City shortly after graduation to work in the media industry.
After four years of living in New York and attending courses at New York University, she returned to Los Angeles in order to continue her career in new media, first as LA Weekly’s Internet culture reporter, and then as SF Weekly’s web editor.
Before she joined TechCrunch, Tsotsis ran the SFweekly.com website from San Francisco, staying on top of memes, the tech scene and human behavior in the digital age.
At TechCrunch, Tsotsis covers early stage startups, and has had the opportunity to interview everyone from Groupon’s Andrew Mason to former FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski. In 2012, Tsotsis made the Forbes “30 Under 30: Rising Stars of Media” list. Her Twitter bio reads, “Breaks news, hearts.”
