Max A. CherneyHello! I'm Max, a journalist at Barron's magazine. I cover public technology companies, such as semiconductor, videogame, and social media stocks. A few large, private companies are also on my beat. For regular updates, find me on Twitter. Previously I have covered cannabis stocks for MarketWatch.

My work has appeared in Investor's Business Daily, where I covered large, public e-commerce companies. For VICE I've written about crime, cannabis and tech. And I talked with Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow for San Francisco in a series of jailhouse interviews.

I'm one of the few writers who have competed against a class of San Quentin inmates in a literary death match.

I've also written poetry, film and theater scripts, and short fiction.

Sometimes I tell stories through digital video.
