Professional/Personal Overview

I sell words - words backed by ideas.

A busy freelance writer for 30 years, I have written over 1500 articles for many leading publications, from the NY Times to Harvard Business Review. I also have written 10 books, and am an expert on the Internet (author of HOW TO DOTCOM, 2001) and on mobile computing.

I blog frequently, on real estate, travel and consumer technology for Mainstreet.com.

I contributed to corporate histories of Oppenheimer Funds and Continental Airlines (75th anniversary).

I wrote the "Mile High Tech Blog" for Continental Airlines via Wired Magazine in 2010.

I also have created custom content for the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, Fortune, The Economist Group, BBC and others.

I have frequently written about credit unions (primarily covering mobile technologies) and cooperatives.
