Writing
I write for several publications, including PCMag.com, where I have a weekly column called Get Organized. I'm also an expert on health and fitness technologies, which is one of my favorite areas of technology at the moment.

In addition, I write avidly about productivity, mobile apps, and software.

My weekly column, Get Organized, is about how to lead a better, happier, and more organized digital life. My first book, Get Organized: How to Clean Up Your Messy Digital Life, is an excellent gateway into the topic if you're a beginner.

My background spans several industries, from science to food. I've worked for Game Developer magazine, Gamasutra.com, The American Institute of Physics, the San Francisco Examiner newspaper, The Association for Computing Machinery, and Intelligent Enterprise magazine.

The first five years that I blogged, I wrote almost exclusively about food. You can find plenty of recipes, restaurant reviews, and other opinion articles in the archives. Since 2012 or so, I've expanded to write posts about whatever strikes my fancy. Sometimes it's related to technology and productivity, and other times it's personal stories and observations about life.

Speaking
I love public speaking and welcome new opportunities.

My talks typically contain tips for being more organized and productive with technology. The goal is to help people tackle their email inboxes, avoid workplace distractions, and conquer procrastination through practical and actionable advice.

I've also hosted panels and roundtable discussions about working in the video game industry, health and fitness technology, and other topics.

In 2013, I spoke at TED headquarters in New York about conquering email. I've also presented at CES (Consumer Electronics Show), The National Conference of State Legislators, Rutgers University, CenCom, the annual Game Developers Conference (GDC), and the annual conference for Women in Cable Telecommunications.

Media Appearances and Requests
I gladly review all requests for media appearances and interviews.

I've been on CNBC, NPR, WNYC, NTN24 (Spanish-language news network), TWiT, and other national and international television, radio, and podcast networks.
