Location icon United States of America

I have extensive experience as an author, a computer industry newsletter / magazine publisher and editor, a freelance photographer, a software engineer, and a video producer. I’ve written for publications as diverse as Byte, Information Week, The 420 Times, and Videomaker.

I taught and developed one of the first classes about microcomputers for the general public at the New School for Social Research, and was the first person to fly a quad-lined soft stunt kite at the lowest spot on Earth.
