DFT faceDylan Tweney is an award-winning writer and editor.

I help companies tell their stories (through text, audio, and video) in in order to increase brand awareness and influence. The teams I’ve led have won awards and have helped put tech brands and publications on the map.

I am the head of communications for Valimail, a San Francisco-based startup enabling email you can trust. I’m also the founder of tinywords, a daily journal of haiku and micropoetry.

Formerly, I was the founder of Tweney Media, a content-centric communications agency, whose clients included Samsung, Korn Ferry International, Upwork, YL Ventures, Bloomberg Beta, and Valimail. (Note: Tweney Media is currently focused on pro-bono, nonprofit work.)

Previous to that, I was the editor-in-chief of VentureBeat and a senior editor at Wired. And I’ve been writing, editing, and publishing professionally for over two decades. See LinkedIn for more details.

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, What Is Found There.
