    I began writing within the branded content/content marketing space in 2011, including articles, blog posts, SEO, Q&A, and profiles. My specialties are cybersecurity and technology, which I've covered on behalf of a variety of industry verticals (after all, what industry doesn't rely on technology or require security systems?). Throughout the years I've covered security and tech for branded content, I've had a front row seat to security's connection to cloud computing, mobile, big data, IoT and other technologies, and I've become a well-respected reporter in this area. Onalytica recently named me as a top 25 influencer in the cybersecurity space. My relationship with experts and marketing professionals in the security industry provide me with ready access to breaking news and sources for quick-turnaround interviews. In addition to a security blog on IT Business Edge, my work has appeared in Tom's Guide, Forbes, Dark Reading (as a ghostwriter), CIO, CSO, Security Magazine, and USA Today, among other publications. Brands I've worked with and wrote content for include Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM, SungardAS, Citizens Bank, Verizon, Microsoft, Kaspersky Lab, TruSTAR, Fortinet, and LogMeIn, to name a few.
