About Me

Here’s what I’m up to:  After thirteen action packed years on Wall Street, I fell deeply in love with the idea of building a platform to help regular people make more informed stock trading decisions and built my first startup, a stocks related news aggregator called tradembark.  I’ve been blogging here since that journey began.  My first post was in June of 2012.

These days I’m Managing Director for the leading global financial innovation accelerator Startupbootcamp Fintech.  I’m a co-founder of the company that runs TechDay, a large scale global startup expo.  If we’ve met, I’ve probably already connected with you on LinkedIn or Angel List.

Here’s some personal stuff about me in no particular order: Made In NY, Musically inclined, Hatha Yoga practitioner, Wave surfer, Consummate traveler, aspiring Rap Genius Scholar, and Lapsed vegetarian. My favorite writer is Seth Godin.

I am proud to be a founding board member of Hannah Banana Foundation, a NYC based non-profit which brings smiles to terminally and chronically ill patients while they are in care.

The other causes I try to support are Michael’s Mission, UJA, Anti-Defamation League, and Kageno.

I’m married to a pretty awesome lady named Rachel who is a female engineer and advocate for girls in STEM.

I'd love to hear from you
