I'm a journalist, author, and novelist represented worldwide by The Hanbury Literary Agency in London. My debut novel, EPIPHANY JONES, will be published by Orenda Books in 2016.
As a writer at Fast Company, I tell the stories about tech, creativity, personal health, the effects of mass media on our psyches, and just plain mysterious stuff. As a writer for VICE, I tell stories about cultures, subcultures, sex, and pornography and I've also done immersion journalism at geopolitical events including the Hong Kong protests against Beijing in 2014.
As a contributing writer to The Guardian and Dennis Publishing's Know Your Mobile, as a features writer for Engadget, and as the former European Editor for AOL’s popular tech news site TUAW I regularly write about all things mobile. I’m also a contributing writer to the online men's lifestyle magazine, Asylum. Additionally I'm a novelist, former screenwriter, and the author of a dozen tech books, which are published by Pearson and Apress.
Of the films I've written and directed, one comedy aired on PBS, while some of my other films for The Art Institute of Chicago brought the world of art to life for children. My screenplays have been optioned by Disney and my film journalism has been published in several industry publications, including Screen.
After discovering many of Hollywood’s dirty little secrets while working for 20th Century Fox, I left and spent five years with Apple as a consultant. Since then, I've moved to Europe and written my first novel (based on those dirty little Hollywood secrets).
I have given interviews about Apple and/or the technology sector as a whole to the BBC, ABC, NBC, PBS, Huffington Post Live, BBC Radio 5 Live, Capital magazine (France), and Revista Veja (Brazil). I’m also quoted in multiple books about Apple.
My writing is read by millions of people each month.
