Freelance Consumer Technology Writer and Editor in Minnesota

Read my blog

I worked in IT for 10 years before pursuing my passion for writing about consumer technology. I've been a tech blogger and journalist for the past seven years. My key experience is in Windows and other Microsoft products, devices, and services. But it doesn't stop there.

I'm also well versed in Android, iOS, Mobile, Google, Apple TV, Roku (anything home entertainment related), and home networking. Anything tech related I enjoy. I mainly write about technology under my real name but have used the screen name "mysticgeek" in the past.

These are the projects I'm working on now:

What I do away from the keyboard:

I play acoustic and electric guitar, collect rock and metal records. I'm a huge fan of WWE and UFC and I enjoy fishing and gardening in the summer.
