Tony has been writing about technology and business since a stint at the San Jose Business Journal in the mid-1990s. He began his freelance career in 1996 and over the years has written features, news reports and blog posts for publications such as CIO Insight, Baseline, Investor's Business Daily and Wired Magazine. He has also written white papers, case studies, Web site content, and marketing collateral pieces for companies such as Oracle, Hewlett-Packard, VMware, Computer Associates, Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories and Oxford Economics. From 2000-2006, he was a senior editor at InformationWeek, where he covered technologies such as CRM and storage, as well as IT in the travel and hospitality industry.
A 1988 graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Journalism, Tony spends his spare time scheming about the future with his wife, playing with his three sons, tinkering around his home in Albany, Calif., and, when time allows, playing saxophone and traveling.
