In this segment, I am advising news team Chris Pisano & Brittany Murphy on best practices for computer security. I have long been featured as a weekly guest for the “Tech Tips” segment on Western Mass News ABC News-40, as well as technology consultant for various stories upon request.

Below is a selection of television appearances I have made on Western Mass News and other venues to discuss technology and other  themes.
