I’m a freelance writer, primarily for newspapers and magazines, specializing in technology but interested in a wide range of subjects.

I've written a book: Giants Past and Present, published by MVP Books in March 2010.

Take a look at some of my stories, both recent freelance pieces for the New York Times, Fortune.com and USA Today, and work I did for the San Francisco Chronicle, where I was a staff writer for nine years.
