  • Jeff is the Senior Features Editor for Looper.
  • He's covered pop culture for a variety of outlets since the late '80s, reviewing and offering commentary on a broad array of films, TV shows, musicians and albums, and books.
  • Jeff is not the Jeff Giles who used to work at Entertainment Weekly and Newsweek, and therefore is not the Jeff Giles who once proclaimed M. Night Shyamalan the next Spielberg. Stop asking him about it.


Jeff started writing about entertainment for money before he was old enough to drive — a passion that's led to bylines at a long list of print and digital publications over the last several decades. The film, television, and publishing industries have changed a great deal since he started, but pop culture's unique ability to move and bind us remains the same — which is one part of why he's happy to have helped cultivate Looper's fan-friendly voice.


Jeff has a bachelor's in history from California State University's East Bay campus.
