About Me, About the Site
|Overview: Mathew J. Schwartz|
Work-wise, I'm a freelance writer, editor, and photographer, as well the InformationWeek information security reporter.
Origin-wise, I'm a native of Chicago, but over the past 10 years have had the good fortune to live in Boston, Paris, Toulouse, Oxford (England) and now St. Andrews, in the Kingdom of Fife (Scotland).
My freelance writing is split about 50/50 between journalism and consulting clients. For both, I focus on business and technology, including information (aka computer or "cyber") security. In addition, I've also covered politics, culture, careers, usability (the practice of making things easier to use), regulatory compliance and travel.
My writing has appeared in such publications as the Boston Globe, Enterprise Systems, Forbes.com, Information Security Magazine, InformationWeek, The Times of London, and Wired News. See my writing archive for links to recent and historical work. I have also contributed to the Fodor's Paris guide, among other travel publications.
In addition, I write, or ghostwrite, white papers, reports, case studies and marketing materials for numerous vendors, manufacturers, standards organizations and consulting companies based in the US and Europe. My past clients have included Cisco, Fortune Magazine, Intel, Ounce Labs, Nielsen Norman Group and Symantec.

|About This Site|
What is this site?
Why the name PenandCamera?
How did you arrive at the design?
The second was to borrow, borrow, borrow. My friend Maria Korolov, also a freelance financial features writer, shared some great ideas. I also borrowed from the musings/examples of Jakob Nielsen (for whom I later freelanced for 5 years) and his Useit site, which should be pretty obvious once you click over there. And thematically, my wordplay muse (and cocktails consultant) Emily Yacus coined the site name for me.
Suggestions always appreciated.
