I cowrote "Competitive Carriers Join the Establishment" in the May 2007 edition of Xchange Magazine (pages 16-17)

I wrote several pieces for New Paradigm Resources Group's Communications Technology Advisor (CTA),
previously known as the Competitive Telecom Advisor. The CTAs have since been turned into blog entries
on NPRG's site. Though not formatted the way they were when I originally wrote them, the blog entries
listed below are the articles I penned for NPRG's CTAs:

And now you can find more of my writing in my blog:

In August 2012, I started a telecom industry blog to allow me to share articles and opinions on the many segments
of the telecom industry in which I've gained experience. I started posting regularly in April 2014.

Michigan Number Portability Workshop, 8/23/96

You used to be able to hear me on NPRG's May 3, 2007 podcast with Peter Allen of DragonWave, but I don't think it's still online anywhere.
Here, at least, is an announcement of NPRG's podcast series; it mentions the Peter Allen podcast.
