I am an IT analyst, consultant and regular contributor to a number of technology publications including Diginomica, TechTarget and AvidThink. I specialize in deep technology analysis, consulting, and writing for vendors, industry organizations, and publications. From the VT100 to the iPad, for more than 35 years my career has revolved around technology. Coming out of Stanford with a BS and MS in Electrical Engineering, I started as an EE developing transistors and fabrication processes, went on to Bell Labs to design integrated circuits, and evolved into an IT architect for HP designing systems and networks. For the past 15 years I have been analyzing and reporting on all things IT, focusing on cloud infrastructure, services, and application development. I write for both IT professionals and business executives, explaining the technology and market trends that affect IT and business operations.
