About me

I'm a reporter turned entrepreneur turned reporter again, currently covering technology for the Silicon Valley Business Journal. I was born and raised in Palo Alto, and joined a successful consumer electronics startup during the first dot-com boom. I later studied journalism and worked for seven years at two daily newspapers and an all-news radio station. After a brief stint in technology PR, I cofounded the mobile software startup Tackable. We raised funding and shipped three live products: A mobile social network, a location-aware news aggregator and a social events calendar. We shut down development after nearly exiting to a major Internet company. I'm looking forward to meeting you over lunch and talking tech.
