Featured journalist: Jose Fermoso
Jose Fermoso is a journalist with two homes: born in Oakland but "bred partly in Mexico," Fermoso split his time between both places growing up. After moving to the U.S. to live full-time, however, Fermoso "found his way to journalism" by copy editing Windows Vista Magazine, which he aptly describes as a "well-respected publication focused entirely on the most reviled software of the century." Later Fermoso joined Wired.com, where he busied himself covering business and consumer tech, developing the company’s Product Reviews site, and co-hosting their popular Wired Gadget Lab podcasts. Eventually he worked as a reporter alongside author Leander Kahney on the unauthorized biography of Jony Ive, which would become a New York Times bestseller. Most recently he joined Silicon Valley Business Journal as a reporter on the Internet of Things and green tech beats. Fermoso also reports for OZY, the daily digital magazine custom "built for the Change Generation." Check out his Muck Rack portfolio here for a taste of his work.
