Hi, I’m Hugh.

Whatever has brought you here... welcome :-)

I grew up in the small but mighty town of Brockville, Ontario, Canada, and I live in San Francisco.

If you’re here because you want to learn more about me, then a) I’m flattered and b) let’s just get right to it, shall we?

I started my career on the editorial team at NewCo, a media startup in SF.  I wrote stories about the collision between technology and politics (like this one) and the rise of “mission-driven” businesses, and did a bit of audience development as well.

I then joined 3DR, a drone technology startup, and led our marketing efforts. I’m really proud of the work we did, including launching a brand new publication and newsletter from scratch.

Today, I work in product marketing at Samsara, working with a great team to launch new products and campaigns.

Overall, I’m interested in building media and technology companies, and exploring how they shape business, politics, and just about everything else. To that end, I occasionally write a newsletter that covers the story of how capitalism is changing (for better or worse), and I volunteer with the fine folks at U.S. Digital Response helping bring pro bono technology support to governments and the social sector.


If there’s anything you want to chat about, feel free to reach out. My email is hugh.mcfall@gmail.com. Thanks for stopping by!
