Verified identity


I have written thought leadership and editorial pieces for creative technologists, startup founders, and industry leaders. My work on their behalf has appeared in outlets like Techcrunch and Inc, among others. My work in the technology space, combined with my editorial experience, gives me a unique skill set. Areas of expertise include virtual and augmented reality; cryptocurrency (bitcoin, blockchain, NFTs); entertainment technology; and transportation technology.

I am the former music editor of Billboard magazine and have written for the Village Voice, Teen Vogue, and Pitchfork, among other outlets. I am the author of two books on music and technology and taught music journalism for several semesters at NYU.
