I live in Seattle and write Collision Course, a newsletter about tech policy, consumer privacy, and the future. (You can sign up here.) I also write a tech column for the Irish Independent.

I also work with the Tor Project, a non-profit which advances basic freedoms and human rights by developing a traffic analysis-resistant communication network. 

I studied journalism and Arabic at New York University, where I also edited the opinion section of the Washington Square News, the university's official student paper, and wrote a weekly column about the intersection of technology and student life.

Raised in Ireland, I've spoken about digital privacy in Europe and the United States.
