I'm managing editor for SA PRO. I work primarily on our PRO product, though also in support of our marketplace product and in a few other areas on the site. I'm always happy to hear from readers and contributors, whether to help with questions, hear your feedback, or learn how you're using the site. I've been working at SA since September 2012.
I've been investing for 6 years. I used to write articles for Seeking Alpha before becoming an editor (while I'm proud of the work I did, it probably would not have been up to our PRO standards, which is a good thing). I am probably one of SA's most frequent users, and have learned an immense amount from contributors, readers, and SA employees.
Beyond the market, I like reading, travel, writing, playing/writing/listening to music, and learning languages. Probably most relevant to ask me about SA, but you're welcome to get in touch on anything else as well.

I am a "reformed" ex-financial adviser who made a career change into healthcare for both practical and altruistic reasons. I have over 15 years of past experience in wealth management. During my previous career I specialized in overall portfolio management and relationship management for ultra-wealthy clients. Prior to voluntarily walking away from a very successful but ultimately unfulfilled career, I co-managed a book of business totaling approximately $1.2 billion AUM including stocks, bonds, mutual funds, hedged funds and private equity funds for a private trust company.
However, after a close family member passed away in 2011 I did some deep soul searching and decided to leave the wealth management business in 1012 for a career in healthcare. From an altruistic standpoint, I believe that I can have a more meaningful impact on society in the healthcare field as a clinician. Also, from a more pragmatic standpoint, I believe that disruptive technology will have less of an impact on careers such as physicians, physicians assistants and nurse practitioners; these types of careers are hard to automate for a number of reasons beyond the scope of this bio.
Now that I have successfully completed my career transition into healthcare I would like to leverage my years of financial experience to keep individuals informed and entertained. I would be doing this research for myself so why not write about it in an open forum like Seeking Alpha. Thanks for reading my profile and I hope that you enjoy my articles.
