As SA Senior Editor, my task is to make Seeking Alpha the premier destination for financial advisors. I have worked in the FA arena since 1997, and during that time, the New York State Society of CPAs twice awarded its prestigious Excellence in Financial Journalism award to me for a monthly column I wrote on business ethics.
Previously, I reported on international news for Voice of America (where I was awarded a newsroom writing award) and prior to that worked as an editorial assistant at U.S. News and World Report.
I live with my wife and children amidst the verdant and vibrant hills and dales of Jerusalem.
I am a 30 year old individual investor that maintains my own portfolio with preference to the DGI strategy. I have a 401k that I contribute to as well to earn matching contributions. I also invest in growth stocks, in which I believe have substancial upside at a reasonable price. I have been growing my portfolio through regular contributions and spend a lot of time researching and learning with content from SA, Schwab (Morningstar) and Yahoo Finance. I plan to write a few articles in the future about my life and investing decisions. Thank you for your time and I hope to provide quality content that can create some excellent dialogue.
