I write about entrepreneurship and intriguing startups in New England.

I am a business reporter based in Burlington, Vermont. In the last eight years, I have covered everything from IBM's "sale" of its semiconductor fab in Essex Junction to GlobalFoundries -- a convoluted deal that involved IBM paying GlobalFoundries -- to the existential struggle facing Vermont's dairy farms. I have written about many startups in this entrepreneurial state, including Dealer.com, arguably Vermont's most successful homegrown company.

I also wrote a series of investigative pieces about the aggressive business practices of Vermont's largest hospital, the University of Vermont Medical Center, which make it difficult for private doctors to survive in Vermont.
