About me

I have been a technology analyst for most of my adult life. With a career spanning two decades, three companies and two continents, I have helped top hardware and services vendors with their product planning, go to market and messaging. 


I spent 14 years at Gartner, most recently as their Consumer Devices Research VP. In this role, I spent most of my time advising clients from invest firms, to technology providers, to traditional enterprise clients. In 2011 I was recognized with the Gartner Annual Global Award, which is given to the individual who has contributed to research in the most extraordinary way.


In 2013, I became Chief of Research at Kantar Worldpanel ComTech where I drove thought leadership research by marrying my deep understanding of global market dynamics with the wealth of data coming from ComTech’s longitudinal studies on smartphones and tablets. 


In 2016, I joined Creative Strategies as a Principal Analyst. I focus on a broad range of consumer technologies and services including those that have a deep impact on user behavior in an enterprise context. My interest in user engagement and user experience drove me to increasingly spend time analyzing the future of work and employee engagement especially as it relates to collaboration and workflows. 


I am a regular contributor to Tech.pinions, Forbes, FastCompany and the Italian's Daily La Stampa.  I am often quoted as an industry expert and commentator in publications such as The Financial Times, Bloomberg, The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. I regularly appear on BBC, Bloomberg TV, NBC News, and others. My twitter account was recently listed in the “101 accounts to follow to make Twitter more interesting” by Wired Italy.
