I write about tech, culture, education, and things that happen to my friends and neighbors, which often gets me in trouble. I work out of the San Francisco Writer’s Grotto. Some favorite pieces: profile of a gal who squandered a free-ride to college in 1994 but then clawed her way there 25 years later; a UCLA college student who has logged 1,000 hours of self-learning; a pair of entrepreneurs being unintentionally socially responsible; and a tech titan trying to cure his own cancer. My work has appeared in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, MORE, San Francisco Chronicle, ELLE, O the Oprah Magazine, Marie Claire, and San Francisco Magazine.

We at the Grotto have written two books. 642 Things to Write About and 712 More Things to Write About.
