Story
Introduction
I've been a reporter for the Mercury News since 1967. During that time, I covered the first moon landing, the Jonestown mass suicides, the Mt. St Helens eruption, Iran-Contra, 9-11 (airline security) and Katrina. I've covered the City of Sunnyvale, the aerospace industry (with a column, "Our Space Age"), the electronics industry (chips, computers); science, medicine, and organized crime. For a couple years, I did rewrite for the  San Jose News (the old p.m. edition); I spent many years as an investigative reporter and projects reporter, winning a Pulitzer Prize for international reporting and contributing an investigative story to our Pulitzer winning coverage of the Loma Prieta earthquake.  A few years ago,I was redirected to the business page, where I wrote about residential real estate for a while. I now cover the chip industry, cybersecurity and other tech stories.Before the Merc, I was editor of the Livermore Independent, and briefly, a reporter for the San Francisco Examiner.
