I am an award-winning journalist currently based in France where I write about startups, entrepreneurs and technology trends for a wide range of publications. Before moving to France in 2014, I spent 15 years in Silicon Valley covering the region's innovation economy for the San Jose Mercury News and the Los Angeles Times.
