I am the founder of Tweney Media, a content agency that helps companies communicate through blog posts, online magazines, podcasts, video, and more. I’m the former editor-in-chief of VentureBeat and was an editor at Wired. And I’ve been writing, editing, and publishing professionally for over two decades. See LinkedIn for more details.
Contact info: My coordinates are in the icons at the top of this page, including my email address and phone number.
Outside work, I founded tinywords, the world’s smallest daily magazine. It’s a haiku and micropoetry journal that’s been publishing more or less daily since 2000.
I’ve been blogging since the last millennium (my first post, on Blogger, was in November 1999), mostly about tech and media but sometimes about swimming or running or the Bay Area or life with kids. I try to write and draw every day, and if you’re into that sort of thing, most of my poetry and artsy stuff is on my Tumblr, El Camino Review.
