About Me

I am a Brooklyn-based, Boston-born freelance writer beguiled by the lives, moves, thoughts and impact of those heroes of capitalism (or plain lucky bastards) we call billionaires. My fascination with these moneyed Masters of the Universe started while I was a reporter at Forbes Magazine where I spent my days tracking and tallying billion-dollar fortunes from Aspen to Auckland.

Before Forbes I worked for Outside Magazine in Santa Fe- just long enough to pick up a pair of cowboy boots and an addiction to green chile- and prior to that did a stint shuffling papers for rich Emiratis at a Dubai investment bank before deciding it was much more interesting to stalk them than work for them.
