I analyze, forecast, and communicate tech trends. I've been a journalist, analyst, and corporate executive, and have chronicled the rise of the mobile economy. Before joining TUNE, I built the VB Insight research team at VentureBeat and managed teams creating software for partners like Intel and Disney. In addition, I've led software development teams, built social sites and mobile apps, and consulted on mobile, social, and IoT. In 2014, I was named to Folio's top 100 of the media industry's "most innovative entrepreneurs and market shaker-uppers.” I live near Vancouver, Canada with my family, where I coach baseball and hockey, though not at the same time. I travel frequently to Silicon Valley and other tech hubs. I'm also the founder of an augmented reality startup, Genesis Reality.
