I am a trained print and Web journalist versed in the latest storytelling techniques and Associated Press style. I have experience covering public safety, higher education, technology and pop culture for a variety of publications.
I founded Nerdvana in August 2007 while working as a copy editor and page designer at the East Valley Tribune to increase the paper’s online pop culture offerings. It placed first in the “Best Feature Blogs” category of the Arizona Press Club’s 2011 and 2010 Best Journalism in Arizona and second in 2009, and on several occasions has made the Wired magazine’s GeekDad list of people to follow on Twitter.
In 2016, I acquired and spun off Nerdvana as an independent venture at nerdvanamedia.com
Speaking of GeekDad, I have been invited to write for the popular blog (once hosted by Wired magazine) on several occasions.
