Prior to returning to self-employment, Tim ran International Investment Conferences, a producer of mining investment networking events. He came into the position thanks to a blend of experience in the media and mining industries. He gained a working knowledge of the mining industry as well as commercial Internet applications during a stint at the Chamber of Mines of South Africa. He moved into the media world as the first Internet Editor for the Sunday Times. From there he went on to be founding editor of a number of publications. He was also a founding director of Moneyweb, a media venture traded on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange since 1999. Tim and his family emigrated from South Africa in 2000 after winning the U.S. Diversity Visa Lottery. Tim has a graduate degree in International Relations, and a Diploma in Business Administration. He read for the degrees at Wits University after completing compulsory military service just prior to the cessation of the Angolan war. Complementing his focus on mining finance and investment writing, Tim also has numerous investigative credits to his name. These include uncovering secret audits of the UN Oil for Food Programme, and documenting a secret visit to South Africa by North Korean officials.

I have over a decade of experience in the financial markets and have traded a variety of equity and fixed income products including but not limited to stocks, bonds and derivatives like credit default swaps (CDS).
