VP, Editorial & Content Innovation, Citia. I write about and help create reader-friendly digital books. Author of “Breaking the Page: Transforming Books & the Reading Experience” and “Best iPad Apps” (both O’Reilly).

I co-founded one of the first multimedia textbook publishers (Digital Learning Interactive, sold in 2004 to Thomson Learning). I’ve also written extensively about the strange and wonderful effects of computers on mainstream culture for many publications, including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Wired, Salon, and the Village Voice.

My undergraduate degree is from Harvard, where I studied American history and literature, and I have an MFA in fiction from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. I live with my wife and two daughters in “upstate Manhattan” (aka Washington Heights).
