Tech journalist in Santa Monica, California

Listen to my podcast

I've been a tech journalist since 1990, which was also the year of my first book -- The Desktop Studio: Multimedia on the Amiga. Since then I've authored almost three dozen books, penned innumerable articles for major magazines and websites, produced podcasts, and appeared on radio and television.

I spent 8 years as a writing manager on the Windows team at Microsoft, where I contributed to how-to content for Windows Vista and Windows 7. I also created and led the Windows Consumer Content Video Team, which made how-to videos for the Windows website.

I have been the editor-in-chief of Techwalla and co-hosted three podcasts: Battlestar Recaptica, Challenge of the Week, and One Cool Thing.

Be sure to watch an episode of Geek Vs Geek, or a recent Techwalla video.
