I'm a tech columnist for TheStreet. I was previously responsible for Seeking Alpha's tech news coverage, as well as its Eye on Tech newsletter. Prior to that, I wrote for other financial sites and published independent investment research, primarily on tech companies.I have a B.A. in Economics from Columbia University. I'm based out of San Diego, but grew up in Southern New Jersey. I play basketball and tennis in my spare time, am a long-time (and long-suffering) fan of Philadelphia's sports teams, and alternate daily between using an iPad Air, a Galaxy Note 3, and one or two Windows PCs.
I enjoy spending time day trading and analyzing the market. I’m always looking for a good swing or day trade, but mostly I’m focused on finding stocks that will hit big and up-list from the OTC to the big boards. Basically, almost all of my portfolio is traded daily, especially considering I tend to look over multiple market segments for trades instead of spending all my time on one section. I’ve been analyzing and trading stocks for over 9 years now, and I have a strong understanding of trends, as well as the knowledge to make smart trades.
