I’m an Editor at Large for CNET News writing about mobile devices, social media, virtual reality, gaming and parenting.

Previously, I wrote for The Wall Street Journal, Reuters and the Agence France-Presse, among others. I’ve also served as an Executive Editor at CNET, managing west coast news coverage.

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.
