Some Personal News…

Fountain pen

Nearly two years ago, I joined VentureBeat to partake in an opportunity to write about interesting companies, and indeed I have. Working at this great publication has given me a chance to not only compete alongside the best, but cover fascinating tidbits of news and interview amazing folks, such as Vint Cerf, Y Combinator’s Sam Altman and Jessica Livingston, former U.S. chief data scientist DJ Patil, chat with the Golden State Warriors, and much more.

I have even been fortunate enough to do pretty cool feature stories that I’ve always wanted to do, a goal I set out for myself upon returning to the journalism space.  It’s been a dream come true and I’m very blessed.

But now is the time to turn the page on another chapter. I will be leaving VentureBeat on May 19 to embark on another journey. This comes after more than 1,800 stories written, covering a breadth of subjects including social companies, startups, venture capital, enterprise, developer tools, payments/commerce, marketing and ad tech, and much more.

Where this takes me will remain my secret for now, but I plan on keeping in touch with the tech space, either through writing here on my blog or through my many Flipboard magazines — you really should check them out!

I extend my heartfelt appreciation to Blaise Zerega, Harrison Weber, Jordan Novet, Matt Marshall, Emil Protalinski, Paul Sawer, Chris O’Brien, Evan Blass, Berenice Magistretti, Jason Wilson, Dean Takahashi, Khari Johnson, Jeffrey Grubb, and Mike Minotti for being so willing to work with me. 🙂

It’s been a blast.
