Senior-level technology writer and editor with over 20 years’ experience. An award-winning journalist, Ann is expert at interviewing engineers, managers, scientists and executives, rapidly assimilating large amounts of background data and extracting relevant key points and messages. She doesn’t miss deadlines and her copy rarely needs editing. Ann is also a veteran public relations/marketing ghostwriter, and has written and edited hundreds of articles for design engineers and managers on technologies of all kinds: hardware and software, at chip, board, system and network levels. Currently, she is a Contributing Technical Editor to EDN and Test & Measurement World. Ann also writes a column for Nikkei Electronics Asia and has worked for RTC Magazine, COTS Journal, EE Times, Electronic Buyers’ News, and Computer Design. She developed and managed RTC’s first coverage of RFID and EE Times’ first coverage of software-defined radio. At EBN, she won two independently-judged CMP Media Excellence in Editorial Awards for Best Technology Feature. Specialties and interests include networking and green/clean technologies.
