Elizabeth Crane is a writer, editor, proofreader, fact-checker, word nerd, and nitpicker. She joined Vox alongside the acquisition of Recode in 2015, came over to the Vox.com style and standards team as a senior editor, and in 2022 added the title of crosswords editor.
Her books include a contribution to The Cassoulet Saved Our Marriage (essays and recipes about family and how we learn to eat), a Yahoo web guide for kids, and Say Yes To College, a guide for first-generation college aspirants. She is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and lives in San Francisco, where she raised her two sons. On Saturdays, Elizabeth changes hats and becomes the on-site manager of the Noe Valley Farmers Market.
Here is a statement of my ethics and coverage policies. It is more than most of you want to know, but, in the age of suspicion of the media, I am laying it all out. I own no stocks, technology-related or otherwise, beyond those managed by my retirement program. I was a Girl Scout for many years and continue, in my life and in my work, to follow a bowdlerized version of the Girl Scout Law, crossed with the Hippocratic oath: Be honest and fair, be responsible, and do no harm.
My work has total editorial independence from Vox's investors, even when they touch on products and services these companies produce, compete with, or invest in.
