Story
Tagline
Managing Editor Emeritus at BYTE, Information Week Freelancer. "The Stone Cold Steve Austin of Tech"
Introduction
I've been in QA Management for 20+ years. I can start QA teams from scratch and (generally) have them optimized in under 6 months. I can coach an existing QA team back into optimized productivity in (generally) under 3 months. Its what I do; and frankly, I'm good at it.
 
 I've been a part time technology journalist for 15+ years. I've helped CMPnet/TechWeb get 2 sites off the ground (File Mine in 1996 and BYTE in 2011) and have helped pocketnow.com and Gear Diary get up and running as well.
