I write about personal tech culture for the Austin American-Statesman and freelance for a variety of publications including Kirkus Reviews (where I helped launch their iPad app reviews section, specifically children's storybook apps),'s tech section and NPR's All Things Considered, where I blogged for All Tech Considered and was an on-air contributor for nearly three years.

I live in New Braunfels, TX, with my wife and two daughters.
