Patricia Hernandez is the Editor-in-Chief of Kotaku, a games publication known for its bold takes and thorough investigations into the games industry. Her experience in games journalism spans over a decade of critical work that challenged conventions of what writing about our medium looks like. She speaks as a recent success story of marginalized journalists dedicated to changing the landscape of how fans and industry alike talk about games.

Patricia Hernandez has written for major game, tech, and culture publications Kotaku, The Verge, and Polygon, and you can read about her vision for Kotaku in her Editor-in-Chief announcement here.
