I've worked in technology media for over 20 years, and am a veteran of more trade shows, announcements and keynotes than I care to remember.
The obligatory personal Steve Jobs story:
At one Apple keynote I was knocked to the floor by Steve Wozniak rushing to bear hug Steve Jobs, who didn't help me up off the floor. Oh and we shared the same birthday and initials, but I'm allergic to apples.
You can also find me on Twitter and (if you're a pal) Facebook. I think my Foursquare account is still live, but I'm trapped in Denmark.
My professional passions are technology, online and mobile publishing, SEO, social media, branding and digital marketing.
