Hi there,

I’m Craig Wilson. I'm the editor of Stuff magazine, South Africa’s premier consumer technology magazine and website. I'm also an MC, and a speaker, analyst, and commentator on all things tech-related. I take photographs and make videos and podcasts, too, and I was one of the Mail & Guardian’s 200 Young South Africans for 2016.

    "I've always thought of myself as a bit of gadget geek... until I met Craig and saw just what that REALLY means. As far as all things tech, gaming, reviews and write-ups go, it doesn't get better than him. He is an absolute authority on it all, and possesses a gift of being able to make it easily understood to the layman, something that many struggle to convey with his acute level of finesse."
