As managing editor, I oversee production and scheduling, and I make sure things are running smoothly on the editorial side. Around here they call me Chief Typo and Deadline Officer.
Before joining VentureBeat, I covered video games for 1UP, Electronic Gaming Monthly, and Next Generation. I also did a stint at Sega and learned what it was like to make video games, not just write about them.
I grew up in and around Silicon Valley, and I’ve worked here for almost 20 years. I have close friends and family members with ties to major companies like Facebook, Google, Twitter, and others. I am committed to keeping these relationships separate from my professional life as a journalist, and I will recuse myself from involvement in any story where a conflict may arise. I support VentureBeat’s ethics statement.
