Articles & Clips

It all started with that first article for Imaging Magazine in 1996 that evolved into a career covering technology. After a few years of writing for magazines, I transitioned to writing for the web where I co-created CNET’s Cell Phone site and translated what works well in traditional print publishing (expert reviews, how-to’s, buying guides, and columns) to the dynamic world of the Internet.

Although I speak fluent tech and turn complex terms into easy-to-understand consumer-friendly language I have also covered other topics as well including travel, gadgets, video, food, and corporate website content.  Below is a sample of my work.

We Cherish Parish: We’ve spent some good times in N’Awlins. We have relatives there who use Tabasco like we use ketchup, think a Bloody Mary is a light breakfast, and talk about their next meal over supper. And we don’t judge, Creole food is da bomb. That’s why we are so excited about the latest venture from the founders of Eat: An Oyster Bar. The duo just set up shop in the Pearl opening The Parish… Read More

Spa at Como Shambhala Retreat, Uma Paro, Bhutan: There are four COMO Shambhala retreats in the world and they are designed to reflect the meaning of Shambhala: a place of peace and tranquility.

Drink Vodka in Krakow, Poland: Vodka is a staple in Krakow, as it should be since Poland is well situated in the “vodka belt,” which spans across Eastern Europe, the Nordic and Baltic States. The country has been producing vodka since the early Middle Ages… Read More

Shooting Online Video Series for VidCompare

If you’re going to do online video, obviously you’re going to need a video camera. This doesn’t have to be a big expense, initially. Maybe you even already have access to a digital video camera or camcorder. You might even have a video camera at home that uses DV tapes; this will be just fine for shooting videos.
