I’ve been on the front lines of the Internet and technology revolutions as a columnist, editor and award-winning reporter for more than a decade.
I cover consumer tech for TwinCities.com, a MediaNews Group and Digital First Media property, and its St. Paul Pioneer Press dead-tree counterpart.
I make frequent appearances on local and national TV-news broadcasts, radio programs and technology podcasts. This blog has archived video or audio of most such media appearances.
I speak with some regularity about journalism, technology and social media (and how the three intersect). A number of such engagements are archived here in video or audio form.
I’m a nerd (in the sci-fi-fanatic and tech-enthusiast senses of the word). I love to merengue, make sushi and brew that perfect cup of café (watch me rave about my favorite coffeemaker).
A native of Quito, Ecuador, I was raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and wear the “boricua” badge with pride.
I live with my wife and son in St. Paul, Minn., where I sometimes grumble about the non-tropical climate but love to strap on a snowboard.
