Before writing I was a programmer and software developer and have lived and worked in the United States and Europe.

I founded -- a website about tablets and mobile phones. Now I write part time for Computerworld's IT Blogwatch, and have written pieces for Forbes NetAppVoice.

Bragging rights: I use tablets running iOS, Android, and Windows.
