Bloom in Tech

I talk with (and about) smart, innovative people and companies in tech, media, entertainment, VR/AR, games, esports, AI, blockchain and advertising. I'm a long-time journalist and former studio executive. I write regularly for Forbes, Next TV, Tubefilter, and TVRev, and consult on communications and content strategy.
