Bio


Mobile technology is huge in our lives today. You’re probably carrying a smartphone, going to work with a desktop or laptop during the day and web surfing on your couch with a tablet. We’ve moved into a constantly connected, always on, continuously communicating lifestyle. This would not be possible without technology and the tech industry has been going through a big upheaval with the migration to ever more mobile devices.

It all started in 2007 with the introduction of the Apple iPhone, but like most tech products, it was really an evolution based on all that came before it. I can say this because I’ve worked in the technology industry for 30 years and have watched the incredible rise of microelectronic devices in our lives.

In June 2010 I began reporting the tech news I read into my @pdxmobile Twitter account, so named because I live in Portland, Oregon (PDX is the local airport designation) and mobile is where all the technology action is nowadays. I worked in the tech industry because I was an enthusiast for the products. As an engineer I helped design some or helped on equipment used to build others. I feel this gives me insight into how things get put together before they’re made available to the public.

I gather most of my news online now, or at in-person meetings that the tech community love such as Lunch 2.0, CHIFOO (Computer Human Interface Forum of Oregon), Barcamp, Ignite Portland, PDX Breakfast, WebVisions, Dorkbot, Open Source Bridge, Android User Group, PDX Cocoaheads, InnoTech, Drupalcon, Chirp, Beer and Blog, PADNUG and other meetups. It’s a big wild tech world out there and I enjoy being part of it as an engineer, a consumer of tech goodies, a visionary on my blog at pdxmobile.com and just a watcher of all things technological.
