As a writer and journalist, I've covered a wide variety of beats. Over the years, I've written and reported on business, travel, books, wine, politics, parenting, careers, technology, science, music, and culture for such publications as Salon, The Nation, Food & Wine, The Industry Standard, Wired, The Financial Times, The Economist, Business 2.0, Parenting, Sunset, San Francisco Magazine, Via, and The San Francisco Chronicle.

People assign me to write on many these topics because of my deep knowledge and experience. As a journalist, I have a unique and powerful background:

• I specialize in business, and I have an MBA from Columbia Business School. I was a recipient of the prestigious Knight-Bagehot Fellowship and the even more competitive Wiegers Fellowship.

• I was a founder and executive editor of the award-winning business-and-technology magazine The Industry Standard, one of the most successful magazine launches of the 1990s. While there, I edited hundreds of articles covering technology, business, books, ideas, careers, and statistics.

• I've been an editor at such additional publications as Parenting, SF Weekly, and The East Bay Monthly, which gives me the ability to understand what other editors want.
