Welcome

Hi. I’m John Gorenfeld, a San Francisco writer, author and consulting Web/iOS app programmer. I enjoy Unix command shells and messing around with Objective-C and Swift.

I’m also a former journalist and pioneering blogger whose writing has appeared in Salon, The New York Observer, Reason and I’ve appeared on NPR, CSPAN’s Book TV, the BBC’s World Service, and the front page of the Washington Post, after breaking one of Washington’s first and most hilarious/disturbing political viral video scandals. Here is a short film I made about that. I have also written about North Korean monster movie kidnapping misadventures and the Digital Entertainment Network Hollywood dot-com scandal.

More soon; portfolio available upon request.
