I write about tech, culture, education, entrepreneurs, women and things that happen to my friends and neighbors, which often gets me in trouble. I have a new book about female CEOs called GIRLS WHO RUN THE WORLD. I work out of the San Francisco Writers Grotto. Some favorite pieces: profile of a gal who squandered a free-ride to college but clawed her way there 25 years later; an essay about my dad crushing as hard as any teenager at age 84; the sad tragedy of the Palo Alto suicide clusters; a riff on obsessive exercise. My work has appeared in the NYT, WSJ, California Sunday Magazine, San Francisco Chronicle, ELLE, O the Oprah Magazine, Sunset, Outside.com, ESPN.com, Marie Claire, and San Francisco Magazine.
