Edward B. Driscoll, Jr. has been writing professionally since age 17, with some occasional gaps in his career to take time out to receive a B.A. in History from the College of New Jersey, and study film production at New York University. Oddly enough, given that background, during most of the early to mid-1990s, he was a Registered Investment Advisor with a financial planning-oriented practice. During this period, he also wrote articles and gave numerous radio interviews across North America and Canada on the subjects of small business, financial planning and career counseling.
He returned to writing full time, after moving to Silicon Valley in 1997. Since then, he has written articles and essays for numerous magazines and "e-zines", frequently on home theater, home automation, technology, the Internet, financial markets, and design.
He is married to the lovely and endlessly patient Nina Yablok, who is a prominent Silicon Valley business attorney. They both conduct much of their work from their home offices, connected to the Internet via cable modem, LAN and much fairy dust and voodoo.
