Recovering management consultant and corporate crisis communications counselor (points for alliteration?) I am embarking on a sabbatical from business life to explore investigative writing on Silicon Valley companies and their misadventures outside of the United States. I am currently working on a nonfiction book exploring how tech companies brushed aside local opposition or laws in eight different countries over the last decade, sowing seeds for the global (and U.S.) backlash we see today. Beyond this, I am researching social media’s role in growing misinformation campaigns along with its role in destructive “social engineering” cyber attacks. If I’m not doing that, I’m probably traveling or catching up on Latin American or Spanish politics. So please, háblame en castellano / fala comigo em português / parlem en català / conversiamo in italiano / et desolé pour mon français.
