Welcome to my personal website. I'm an assistant managing editor at Money magazine, where I first began working as reporter in 1997. In addition to my editing, I wrote a monthly column for a couple of years and still contribute the occasional feature to Money and other Time Inc. publications. On this page, you'll find links to those stories.

From 2001 through most of 2002, I was a senior writer covering business and economics from London for the European edition of Time. Prior to becoming a journalist, I was an analyst at Morningstar, the mutual-funds research service in Chicago. I grew up in that neck of the woods, in Aurora, and went to college downstate at Illinois. I think of myself as an incurable, bred-in-the-bone Midwesterner. Naturally, I live in Brooklyn.
