Jeff O’Neal, Editor-in-Chief & Co-founder, reads books and writes about them. When he’s not doing that, he’s teaching writing and literature at a large East Coast university. He has the great good fortune of living with his favorite person in the world and their two bright, beautiful children in Brooklyn, NY.

Clinton Kabler

Clinton Kabler, COO & Co-founder, is a reader and a magnificently average writer. Book Riot readers needn’t worry about being subjected to his writing because he manages Book Riot’s business operations. Should you be curious to know how magnificently average writing reads, he suggests reading MTA notices.

He holds an MBA from an East Coast university. Upon completing his MBA, he jumped into the West Coast startup world and quickly learned that he had wasted a lot of money on said MBA. When not being a husband and father, he runs marathons and cycles mountains. He splits his time between Vancouver (the one in Canada) and Brooklyn.

Rebecca Joines Schinsky, Senior Editor, Director of Content and Community is a gluttonous consumer of culture in its many forms and loves to write about them. She is an unapologetic foodie who reads like a wild woman, knows all the lyrics to your favorite 90s hip-hop songs, and watches The Jersey Shore without a shred of irony because, you know, it’s important to be well-rounded. When she’s not at Book Riot, Rebecca works on the Bookrageous podcast with two of her favorite people, wrangles the world’s most adorable basset hound, and sits on the board of directors of James River Writers in her adopted hometown of Richmond, VA.

Yan KlatsYan Klats, Director of Sales, enjoys life to the fullest. He is currently residing in the happening capital of Virginia. As a true New Yorker, his passion for everything sport is only surpassed by his love for the Jets and his community. When he’s not watching the Jets or running Toughmudders, he enjoys clay sculpting, rock climbing, skiing, and dancing salsa. He only dedicates his personal or professional time to areas that can make a long lasting impact on people.

Alex Baker, Director of Technology, enjoys making our sites come to life, drawing inspiration from all corners of the earth. In addition to providing clean mark up and optimized load speeds, he also enjoys learning the art of BBQ smoking, gardening, drumming & performing with various bands around NYC, and setting out for outdoor adventures of all types.

Alex isn’t much one for Twitter, but thinks it’d be cool for you to check out his band Skull Practitioners.



amanda nelsonAmanda Nelson, Senior Editor and Community Manager, digests books and food with equal enthusiasm. When she’s not inhaling a book (or writing about it), she’s gettin’ culinary at Book Riot’s sister site, Food Riot, or having a Narnia-sized adventure somewhere with her husband and twin boys. Her dream is to be Jean-Luc Picard and/or Doctor-Donna when she grows up, but Ron Swanson’ll do in a pinch.
