I've worked as a business reporter and an editor since 1994, with the last eight years focused on venture capital and private equity industries.
I began my stint as a paid journalist in 1988 when I covered city hall for a community newspaper in Southern California. In addition to business reporting, I have written news and features on high school sports, real estate, environmental issues and city government for several community publications throughout California.
At Thomson Reuters, I focus on the venture capital industry, covering fundraising, startups and entrepreneurs. I contribute to peHUB.com, Venture Capital Journal and Reuters.com.
I'm currently focused on creating the first conference for VCJ (http://www.vcjconferences.com/) in October 2011.
I'm also currently working on producing VCJ's first ever meetup, an invite-only affair focused on the cloud sector, for VCs and entrepreneurs. The event is on Sept. 29; ping me if you want to know more details.
• Duties include assigning and editing stories to staffers and a network of freelancers, and I coordinate with production on layout of 80-page monthly print publication.
Business journalism pro, especially when it comes to venture capital and tech. Experienced reporter and editor, skilled at managing multiple freelance photographers and writers at a time. Growing interest in social media as a means to communicate and interact with readers and sources.
