Billy Disney is currently the Lead Director of Video at The Verge, a Vox Media publication that covers the intersection of technology, science, art, and culture. Before joining Vox, Billy ate dog food at Viddler, told record labels what the internet was at DL Media, and held the former world record for the most sexual innuendoes in a potato-themed rap song. In 5th grade, Billy starred as the villainous hacker in Beaver Creek Elementary’s musical production of CyberKids Computer Club. Seven years later, he was suspended for “hacking” after a fellow student was caught looking at pornography using a web proxy hosted on Billy’s personal website.


Billy acts dumb on Twitter, snaps pictures of his cat and his fiancé on Instagram, infrequently updates his Tumblr, and reminds his grandmother that he’s still alive on Facebook. His work can be seen throughout theverge.com and on YouTube.
