Rae Witte started her writing career doing news and features for Hypetrak upon relocating from Miami to New York. Following a summer of pulling a couple huge interviews—D.R.A.M. before “Broccoli”, the only digital interview given by Skepta on his first sold out U.S. tour, and Grammy Award winning Beyonce collaborator Melo-X while he was under NDA with the Queen B—, she joined the team at Complex to become the managing editor of the style and sneaker channels.
Since July 2016, Witte has consistently covered music, fashion, sneakers, women’s issues, art, travel, sex, dating, and occasionally sports for sites like Forbes, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, TechCrunch, i-D, Fashionista, NYLON, GQ, and Esquire, among others. She also specializes in bringing these topics to sites that wouldn’t normally cover them, like comparing dating apps to drinks for Wall Street Journal or discussing why women offer 24 hour a day access to their location to their friends for TechCrunch.
In addition to writing, Witte has also maintained an online radio show, taken on brand consulting clients, picked up copywriting projects, and started to put together and moderate panels.
