Hola Everybody!
Introduction
I'm a fast-talkin', quick-typin' journalist with an interest in technology, a head for business and a high regard for science. I like... pretending I'm a local everywhere I go, Googling things from my beach chair, strong cups of coffee and sushi. Dislikes? The word "moist" and finding parking.
