I'm a freelance writer. That means I attend fewer meetings, but pay more taxes, more often.

Here's how to contact me.

I'm a former contributing editor at Lifehacker and author of The Complete Android Guide. Now I'm trying to write other stuff for different people (including a Google+ book). I organized the first TEDxBuffalo, and I'm working on a new podcast, In Pod Form.

I live in Buffalo, NY. I also live on Twitter and Google+. Here's the longer "About" page.
