Russ is a UK-based Staff Writer for Versed Vaper who has been in journalism for more than two decades, having previously written for tech publications like Lifewire. He tried vaping in 2015 but the setup that he was using wasn’t quite right and so he didn’t enjoy it at first. However, after going back and forth between vaping and smoking for a couple of years, he started experimenting with different coils, power levels, and mixing his own vape juice. The rest is history and Russ has been a devoted vaper ever since. Russ is a passionate writer and he produces reviews, news, and well-researched informational articles for our site. When Russ is not testing or writing about vapes, he likes to travel, read true crime, and eat anything with lots of chilies.

I started vaping approx. 5 years ago as a way to give up smoking. I'd tried many times previously to stop, but switching to vaping finally helped me to give it up for good. Now I enjoy building my own coils and squonking on an RDA, and would love to help others make the switch from smoking to vaping.

I started vaping in the summer of 2014, my wife is a non smoker and bought me my first vape setup to help me kick the stinkies! I've been cigarette-free every since and loving it! I vape a multitude of devices, love trying and testing new pieces of kit, and have a passion for helping others to kick the habit too.

Daniel Hoadley

Daniel is a Freelance Writer for Versed Vaper. He started vaping in 2014 with his first device, the Innokin iTaste MVP V2.0. With a maximum wattage output of 11W and the device itself being roughly the same size as the first-ever cell phone, it’s safe to say he’s seen some immense changes in the vaping world. He used to smoke up to 20 cigarettes a day but hasn’t looked back since discovering the fascinating world of ohms and o-rings. On the weekends, you’ll find him cheering on his terrible soccer team, Birmingham City, or trying his best to convince his wife that vape clouds will not cause the wallpaper to peel.

I was a cigarette smoker for 9 years. I started vaping in 2019 and fully converted to a combustion-free life shortly after. Since then, I've become knowledgeable in all things vaping, and love sharing what I've learned with others. I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and watching Sunday night football. I'm an avid user of sub-ohm tanks, pod vapes, and MTL RTAs.

When I first started vaping, I quickly realized the potential that it had to be a better alternative to smoking. When I get interested in a subject, I go all-in, and so I quickly became obsessed with learning everything that I could about vapers, vaping, and anything even remotely related.

When I'm not writing reviews, editing content, or working on the front/back end of the website, I enjoy spending time with my two daughters and working on my car.

Quitting smoking is one of the hardest things a person can do. Ever since I took my first puff on an e-cig, I knew it was the only way out. Since then, I've turned my passion into a reality—testing hundreds of vapor products over the years. My goal is to save people time and money, while making their transition into vaping a smooth one. When I'm not writing, vaping or writing about vaping, you can find me playing the drums or cruising the streets of Brooklyn, NYC.
