Outside of my work, I speak at events and conferences on topics ranging from entrepreneurship to social media. I focus my talks on media, technology, entrepreneurship, journalism and business. I have a diverse pool of knowledge on which I base my presentations. (also, as you will see, there is also no shortage of entertainment or lolcats in my talks.)
My writing and expertise have also been featured and referenced by many media outlets, including Fortune, Fox News, CNN, Marketwatch, PC Magazine, USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, The Telegraph, The Atlantic, Globe and Mail, Wired, Denver Post, BBC, The Wall Street Journal, CNET, Sky News, PC World, Reuters, Washington Post, Toronto Sun, CBS News, Salon, Del Spiegel and The New York Times.
This page is a small selection of my media appearances, presentations, talks and more.
