Journalist

I write a popular weekly column for Computerworld, contribute news analysis pieces for Fast Company and SecurityIntelligence and also write special features, columns and think pieces for a variety of publications reaching millions of readers each month.

Since the early 90s, I've worked as chief editor for WINDOWS Magazine and a variety of other tech publications, most of which I founded, co-founded or launched.

I've also consulted for publishing companies (including Ziff Davis) and Silicon Valley startups on the development of innovative new content and media.

I've moderated or spoken at hundreds of technology panels and events; appeared as a guest on BBC, CNN, CNBC, FOX News among others; and have been quoted by The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, NPR and hundreds of other publications and media organizations.

I served for two years as TWiT's News Director and the anchored the daily show Tech News Today

nomad

I'm a nomad. My wife and I live all over the world. Sometimes, we live in Europe, Latin America, Africa or Asia. We spend maybe a third of our time in the United States, mostly in Silicon Valley. (The map pinpoints my current location.)
 

Several times a year, we host between 6 to 10 adventurous foodies for a week in some spectacular location. We call them Gastronomad Experiences, and we invite YOU to check these out for yourself, and join us. Just click below.
