I write this blog for Boston’s only online magazine, Blast.
I am an instructor of journalism at Emmanuel College in Boston.
My byline has appeared in dozens of publications, such as the Times of London, Wired, the Village Voice, Seed, The Register, Psychology Today, Boston magazine, The Scientist, Grist and Glenn Beck’s Fusion magazine.
BoingBoing, BuzzMachine, the Poynter Institute, NPR, the Chicago Tribune, Cryptomundo, and MIT Technology Review have picked-up my stories, as well.
I have also written features for magazines published by the Harvard Medical School, the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and Brown University. (For clips, click here.)
I have been interviewed on many radio programs, and once chaired a panel discussion about RFID in Boston.
My stories about RFID and other Homeland Security technologies are cited in numerous scholarly and popular books, academic papers and research journals.
I co-developed the Globe’s video podcast, “TechLab,” with an Emmy Award winning Boston.com video producer, and kicked it off with three episodes in 2007.
A graduate of the Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, I began my media career in broadcasting, working on shows for CBS and NBC. I also worked for a short time as a technical director for MTV Networks.
I got into journalism as a columnist in Northern Ireland, where I wrote several pieces for Ireland’s second oldest newspaper, The Derry Journal.
