I built VB's research team from 2013 to 2015, after writing for VB for a couple of years. I now write about tech for Forbes and Inc. Magazine, and I also serve as TUNE's Mobile Economist.

I have a strong background in technology and marketing: building sites, apps, and companies, and have been a full-time digital journalist. I've built social sites, managed local search sites, built mobile apps.

And I've managed teams creating software for partners like Intel and Disney. In addition, I've managed product families with over $75M in annual revenues, and successfully run international bizdev, closing 6-figure contracts with F100 companies.

I consult with tech companies and brands, and I speak at international conferences on technology, mobile, and marketing.
