Director of Public Relations, Reverb Communications
I have immersed myself in the business of writing about video games since 1994, starting as the managing editor of Next Generation, EIC of five IGN channels, and later as a freelancer for Kotaku, EGM, VentureBeat, CNN, and more. Favorite all-time games: Limbo, BioShock, 80 Days, Sid Meier's Pirates!, Doom, Red Dead Redemption. When not playing games or parenting my daughter, I'm hiking through the forests of the John Muir Trail.

I'm also a reporter at San Francisco Business Times, covering real estate and economic development. I'm an avid fan of DOTA 2, and I also enjoy single-player roguelikes including Spelunky, The Binding of Isaac and Crypt of the NecroDancer.
