Her affection for all things nerd is second only to her passion for communication, which spawned a nearly two-decade love affair helping the tech industry tell its stories to the world.

Her writing has appeared in the Huffington Post, Forbes, SF Chronicle, LA Times, SJ Mercury News, The Advocate, Santa Cruz Sentinel and others.
