Professionally, I serve as the editor for Microwave Journal, the longest running trade magazine covering RF and microwave technology, products, and markets. I'm fascinated by the intersection of market need and technology and the businesses and strategies that emerge.

My career has bridged design to marketing, largely related to gallium arsenide (GaAs) integrated circuits (ICs) and their applications. I feel fortunate to have been one of the midwives at the birth of this technology, now a multi-billion dollar industry. Your cell phone, tablet, and laptop all use GaAs ICs to make cellular and Wi-Fi connections.

Politics is my favorite spectator sport. When I'm not working, you'll likely find me listening to podcasts, reading, or contemplating how best to live a meaningful life.
