Nicholas White is the co-founder, Editor-in-Chief, and CEO of The Daily Dot.

Previously, he was Vice President of Audience Development for Sandusky Newspapers, Inc. Midwest Division and a reluctant futurist. Before that, he was the company’s Interactive Media Director.

Sandusky, a private company, was founded in 1822 and has newspaper and radio holdings in major markets across the US. The company has its roots in Sandusky, Ohio, where the same family has owned the Sandusky Register since 1869, making it one of the longest continuously owned daily newspapers in the nation.

White was born in California and since leaving home has lived in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, New York City, and Norwalk and Sandusky, Ohio. White currently resides with his wife, Louisa Edwards, the romance novelist, and their two dogs, Hunter and Oscar (as in Hunter S. Thompson and Oscar Acosta) in Austin.

In his spare time, he learns stuff. He has a bachelor’s degree from Haverford College, a master’s from Columbia University, and an MAPP from the University of Pennsylvania, and he holds professional certificates from New York University and Case Western Reserve University. He has also taken courses at the New School and Oberlin.
