Dan Fost

Freelance Writer for hire

Greetings and welcome to my Web site. I’m a freelance writer based in the San Francisco Bay Area, specializing in technology coverage for newspapers and magazines but interested in a wide range of subjects. I wrote a baseball book, “Giants Past and Present,” which was published in March 2010 by MVP Books. The San Francisco Giants’ 2010 World Series victory provided the icing on the cake for a very sweet year!

I am a regular contributor to San Francisco magazine. I have worked as a freelance writer  for Forbes, the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Fortune.com and USA Today, among others. I was a staff writer at the San Francisco Chronicle for nine years, covering Silicon Valley.

I welcome feedback, advice, and writing assignments. And Giants tickets!
