I have contributed a column on innovation in business to the Sunday Business section of the New York Times, and my book, The Man Behind the Microchip: Robert Noyce and the Invention of Silicon Valley>, is a biography of one of the inventors of the microchip who was also a co-founder of Intel. I also work as the project historian for the Silicon Valley Archives at Stanford.
I grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where I met my now-husband at the age of 12. I graduated from high school in 1987 and from Yale (with a B.A. in American Studies) in 1991. After a stint as an executive speechwriter for a Fortune 500 company, I entered the Ph.D. program in History at Stanford. I received my doctorate in 2001.
