I'm a long-time research journalist who left the newspaper industry in 2009 and took a job in marketing. I have a passion for storytelling, and I wanted the freedom to write what I wanted whether it was an article about a controversial new research, a questionable business tactic, a screenplay or a poem. Previous employers included U.S. News & World Report 1997-2000, the San Jose Mercury News 2000-2009 and Salesforce.com 2009-2011. I currently contribute to IEEE Spectrum and work at Twilio.
