  • Christina Farr

    Venturebeat
    Writer

  • Agenda

    The Future Created by Big Data & Cloud Enterprise

  • Profile

    I am a San Francisco-based writer covering cloud computing, health IT, women in business, education technology, and venture capital. I regularly cover breaking tech news, but also write long-form human interest features.

    Prior to VentureBeat, I worked as a freelance writer for the San Francisco Chronicle, TheNextWeb and Digital Trends, among others. My byline has also appeared in Washington Post, Reuters, and the Telegraph, where I contribute to the Wonder Women section. In 2011, I received a Masters from the Stanford Graduate School of Journalism. I’ve appeared as a featured expert on Fox Business, CNBC, ABC News, and others. I also regularly moderate panels, and speak at tech conferences.

    The first thing people usually notice about me is my accent. Growing up, I divided my time between the urban sprawls of New York and London. So when I’m not telling stories, you’ll find me embracing everything that the California lifestyle has to offer: yoga, wine and hiking.
