Blake Montgomery is a journalist and fiction writer in San Francisco, where he writes and edits breaking news for The Daily Beast. Previously, he worked as a breaking news reporter for BuzzFeed News, a job that led him to be arrested and jailed in Seattle for a story on deadly testicular injections. His work has also appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, and Vice's Motherboard. He is both "an essential follow" and "an insufferable BuzzFeed sh*tlib" on Twitter, according to conservative commentator Mike Cernovich. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Stanford's creative writing program and currently serves on the board of Stanford Magazine.
