About Me
I have reported on business, technology, investing, science, travel and other topics for more than 20 years.

My byline has appeared atop more than 2,000 freelance articles in more than 100 publications including American Way, Best Life, Entrepreneur, Kiplinger's Personal Finance, Men's Health, National Geographic Kids, The New York Times, PC World, Southwest Spirit, The Wall Street Journal and Worth.

In addition, I have authored, co-authored, ghostwritten or collaborated on numerous books, the most recent of which is Not Just a Living: The Complete Guide to Creating a Business That Gives You a Life (Perseus, 2003.)

I have been interviewed many times by local and national print and broadcast journalists and featured as a commentator for a series about small business on National Public Radio's "Marketplace." I speak frequently to a variety of audiences about entrepreneurship, lifestyle business, freelance journalism and related topics.

I received a bachelor's of journalism from the University of Texas at Austin and live in Austin, Texas.
