I wrote my first line of code in 1973 while still in high school. After graduating Yale in 1979, I landed a gig developing training materials for AT&T Bell Laboratories—where I became immersed in the technologies that would underpin innovation for the coming decades: Internet, data networking, mobility, and computing.
My work at Bell Labs led to relationships with Novell, Lotus, and other entrepreneurial innovators in the enterprise PC market. I then made the move to technology journalism—contributing to leading publications such as BusinessWeek, CIO, Computerworld, Forbes, InformationWeek, InternetWeek, Network Magazine, and Success. This work put me in daily dialog with technology specifiers and buyers in all major vertical markets.
When the so-called "tech bust" happened in March 2000, I switched over to freelance work for top tech vendors and a variety of startups. However, I maintained my relationships with the publishing community—which began to aggressively branch out into custom content, events, and other marketing support. This work gave me a unique opportunity to travel across the US, spending hours every week face-to-face with executives and technology professionals in finance, healthcare, retail, manufacturing, energy, transportation, education, and government.
I now leverage my 40 years of experience living at the intersection of business and technology to help my clients tell their stories the right way to the right people at the right time for the right outcomes. If you're reading this, chances are I can help you and your team too. And we might even have a good time while we're at it!
