A content editor with Wired News, has been an editor and writer with Internet news sites almost as long as there has been news on the Web. After 15 years as a newspaper reporter and three as a book/magazine editor, Rochmis was hired in 1995 as employee No. 5 with SF Gate, the online service of the San Francisco Chronicle and KRON-TV. There, he helped conceive of and administer the tone and attitude of one of the first news sites on the Web.

Rochmis also helped launch, a San Francisco website, where he was hired as senior content producer in 1997.

Rochmis came to Wired News, an online news site dedicated to modern technology, the new economy, Internet politics and culture, in July 1999.

As a newspaper reporter, Rochmis covered sports, news, and business, and was the Oakland Tribune's beat reporter for the San Francisco 49ers from 1985-90. He began his journalism career with the old Berkeley Gazette/Richmond Independent, where he worked for six years, before joining the Tribune for nine years.

He has a bachelor's degree in journalism from UC-Berkeley and a master's degree in sports fitness and management from the University of San Francisco.
