Hi there


I’m an Executive Editor for CNET News writing about Facebook and managing coverage of Internet giants, video games, wearables, cybersecurity and more. Previously, I wrote for The Wall Street Journal, Reuters and the Agence France-Presse, among others.

This site contains some of my best work covering companies such as FacebookApple, Microsoft, Sony and Electronic Arts. I’ve also written some fun pieces along the way.

Below are some of my favorites.
