On Forbes, I write about the process of how unique consumer products go from ideas to fruition, from specialized ski gear to groundbreaking technological inventions. I'm originally from the east coast, with a master's degree in media from George Washington University. Prior to writing, I worked in corporate marketing and PR for many years and became familiar with the process of products and services becoming consumer reality. Now, I write for Playboy, Fodors, theBillfold, and more. When I'm not on my laptop, you can find me outside on the trails and mountains of northern California, usually with my camera and four-legged sidekick.
