Paresh is a San Francisco-based technology correspondent at Reuters, a global news agency whose articles and videos reach stock investors, newspapers and broadcasters and Reuters website and apps. He follows Google, other Alphabet Inc companies, Facebook and the tech industry's application of artificial intelligence. He is looking for story ideas that break news, reveal new initiatives, assess corporate strategies, hold companies accountable and show how key executives are addressing big challenges.
Paresh used to cover Los Angeles startups like Snapchat, eSports, cybersecurity and the intersection of Hollywood and tech. He also has written about the courts system, cybersecurity and sports business. He is a life-long Californian... and Dave (Duh-vay) is indeed the last name.
Paresh joined Reuters in San Francisco as technology correspondent in September 2017 after 4-1/2 years, mostly as a technology reporter, at the Los Angeles Times in Los Angeles. He and colleagues received an honorable mention for Society of American Business Editors and Writers Best in Business award in 2018 for their coverage of Snap Inc's 2017 IPO.
A graduate of University of Southern California's Annenberg School, he spent nearly all of his time there managing the school's student-run online news publication Neon Tommy, which at the time was the nation's most-visited college website.
Paresh spent summers interning at the Sacramento Bee Capitol Bureau and the San Francisco Chronicle's business desk. He also studied abroad in Auckland and spent a spring break reporting in Dublin and Belfast.
Through it all, baseball and other sports have been a big part of life. He's watched a ballgame in each of the 30 Major League Baseball cities.
