RssEditor, Writer Tech

For the past 26 years I have been working as an editor and writer in the computer/high-tech domains. I have worked on established magazines, magazine and Web startups as well as computer hardware and software product launches. I have extensive writing experience in a wide variety of areas and pride myself on being able to learn, research, and write about almost any topic. I am very familiar with the entire publishing process from working with authors to editing to layout and design and ultimately to print or online. Ideally I would like a position building and/or managing an editorial team on a startup project.

About Me


Media & Communication




I was founding Editor-in-Chief of Amiga World Magazine, one of the most cutting-edge computer magazines of its day that combined technical information with a graphic flare that won two Word and Image awards. One of my editorials was quoted in the New York Times. One of my technical articles on 3D rendering has been translated into a dozen languages and is still listed as required reading for a number of college graphics courses.
