Victor Barreiro Jr. took the long, winding route to arrive at journalism.
After writing for a videogame news website, he spent time as a call center agent for a major game console maker, and eventually started writing an online video game opinion column for MMORPG.com.
Since joining Rappler in 2012, he's pursued writing news, focusing primarily on the technology sector. He now both writes and edits Rappler stories and finds joy in supporting the intrepid reporters and contributors of the team.
He considers himself a perpetual journalist-in-training, as there's always something new that needs to be learned.
