  • My main beat is consumer electronics with a heavy focus on mobile tech. I’m comfortable writing about gadgets and technology for both mainstream, less tech-savvy audiences and geeky early adopters.
  • I have experience writing reviews, features, news, tips, and other evergreen content. I’m a veteran of hands-on and event coverage, which includes some video production and image editing savvy.
  • I also cover politics, culture, entertainment, social justice (special focus on women and African-American issues), and the intersection of these topics (including tech).
  • My content is regularly syndicated on Yahoo, Time Techland, NBC, Mashable, and other outlets.
