Hello there. My name is Tracey Lien and I am a journalist. I am currently a senior reporter at Polygon, a Vox Media brand.

I was born in Sydney, Australia. I currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area, the United States of America. I do a very convincing South-West Sydney accent. I do not do a very convincing American accent.

My work has appeared in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Sun Herald, The Age, New Matilda, AAP and TimeOut Sydney. I was an online producer at Fairfax Media, associate editor at Kotaku Australia and was a researcher for Southern Star Entertainment, where I worked on a documentary series about Australian immigration and multiculturalism.

I won the Walkley Foundation’s Media Super Student Journalist of the Year award in 2010. I won the IT Journalism Award for overall Best Journalist in 2012. I won the Smithfield Public School Easter Egg raffle in 1995. I did not receive a cash prize for either of these achievements, which disappointed my parents.

I love you all.
