I write a newsletter and blog called Letters Patent, which you can read and subscribe to.

I also work at the Electronic Frontier Foundation as a policy analyst, where I write about free speech, encryption, copyright, patents, and other aspects of tech policy. I’ve worked in journalism, writing, and editing for more than a decade, covering state politics, federal courts, and technology. Before that, I spent time in a video-rental store, a date orchard, and on the streets of San Francisco as a bike messenger.

Aside from journalism and advocacy, I enjoy cycling, swimming, and trail running. The front-page photo was taken when I led a cycling trip to Big Sur Island, a magical place that existed for several months in 2017.

You can learn more about me by reading my work at Ars Technica, Wired, or EFF. Or, send me an email.
