The short version is that I’m a writer originally from a small town in northern Appalachia. The longer story is that I earned my master’s from the University of California at Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism in 2000. While there, I won the Wired magazine “Excellence in Technology Writing” award, and then worked for both Wired and Wired.com.
In 2003, I wrote a book called Dungeons & Dreamers before accepting a job as the producer and senior editor for MIT’s Technology Review Web operation. I’ve been an advisory board member for South by Southwest Interactive for more than a decade, where I’ve hosted its Accelerator program since 2009. I’m also an editor and advisory board member for Carnegie Mellon’s ETC Press.
Mostly, though, I love telling stories. I write, I create podcasts, I tinker with video, I work in the weird space between digital, print, and the real world. You can find my professional information at LinkedIn or About.me, and you can find all the places I exist as an author.
