I write about business and technology including emerging tech enterprise software/cloud computing, online privacy issues, identity theft and online security.

I have written for numerous magazines and online news media in a range of styles such as features, articles, breaking news, Q&As, news briefs, business personality profiles, social trend pieces and blogs.

My publication credits include CITEWorld, E-Commerce Times, CMSWire.com, Forbes.com and the Financial Times’ Foreign Direct Investment Magazine.

My past senior-level editing experience includes planning editorial, assigning articles, and writing in-depth features for Global Business Magazine, a 100,000 circulation monthly.
