About Me

Eric Leamen

Currently: Digital Producer at the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan
My name is Eric Leamen. I'm a tech blogger, former journalist, and digital content creator. I've spent the last two years working as a Digital Producer at the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan, responsible for maintaining the content on our public website and corporate intranet. Prior to that I spent six years at WildBrain, a Canadian children's entertainment company. I started at WildBrain as a web content coordinator for Family Channel and Family CHRGD (previously Disney XD Canada) before transitioning into an IT role as a Product Owner for Content Services. In the early 2010s I worked as a journalist covering technology for numerous outlets, including as Managing Editor of CE: The Magazine, and a Senior Editor for TheCellularGuru, both now defunct. My work has been published by BetaKit, MobileSyrup, and BGR, among others. I was also the host of tech podcast called Pivot alongside my friends Micah Singleton and Mike Wehner, and an earlier podcast called The Segue also co-hosted by Micah. My experience creating written, video, and audio content on the internet spans decades.
