Who am I?
I'm a freelance editor, writer, and editorial consultant.
I have been writing about technology since before Bill met Melinda and you met Google.
I started out at PC World in the early 90s. This was before anyone thought any of that was cool. My friends eyes glossed over and they changed the subject if I tried to talk about work, which included meetings with Philippe Khan, Melinda Gates, and Sergey Brin. Every day was pretty fun. But we were nerds. Ask me sometime and I'll tell you a highly romanticized version what that was like. We were a magazine. We covered stuff we loved. It was good times.
A lot has changed in the magazine industry since then. A lot has changed in technology since then.
And, while I don't really keep up with this site, I do keep up with the rest of it.
I have a lot of ever-changing clients. Some of whom I should probably highlight here.
I am a contributing editor for Family Circle magazine, print.
I recently wrote the Deal Seeker column at Yahoo! Tech -- till that enterprise shuttered.
I also write about education, science, parenting, and many other topics for many other publications. Clients include Discovery Communications, Greatschools.org, Better Homes and Gardens, Popular Science, This Old House Magazine, USA Weekend, PC Magazine, PC World, Jaguar, Saks Fifth Avenue, and many others.
I wrote the book How to Be a Geek Goddess (No Starch Press; 2009) and have written for dozens of national magazines.
