I've written several top-selling computer books, including the Computer Virus Handbook and the KISS Guides to Windows. I've served as a media consultant to and executive writer for IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, Sun Microsystems, Compuware, CA Technologies, Unisys, and other global tech giants. I'm past President of the Marc Foundation, and a former Democratic Committeeman for the Area 4 Montgomery Country Democratic Committee.

Bragging rights
I can debug without a debugger. Developed one of the first PC antiviruses (Checkup). Developed BBSX, a popular BBS back in the day. Developed Space Ace, the first hard disk cleaner (and still the only "safe as milk" HD cleaner). Ghost-wrote the virus section of John Dvorak's first book. Wrote the first book from a major imprint (McGraw-Hill) on computer viruses. Wrote several top-selling titles about Microsoft Windows for DK Publishing. Was the first computer reporter for KYW Newsradio, and the first host of PC TALK on CBS Radio. My InfoWeek coverage of MSFT was entered into evidence in the historic U.S. v. MSFT antitrust case. Nominated for several Computer Press Association awards. Won the CMP Excellence in Editorial award for Best Cover Story. Runner-up for Best Weekend Talk Radio Show in the AIR awards. Consulted to leading IT titans on lots of other stuff that I can't share or I would have to kill you. Winner of 2013 Ragan's PR Daily Awards for (1) Best Content Marketing, (2) Best Brand Journalism, (3) Best News Release. See my LinkedIn profile for other awards and honors.
