Well hello. A bit about who I am.
Economics and finance
I am a macro analyst for StreetAccount, a business intelligence service for equity investors, where I write about the intersection of economics, politics, and finance.
Qualifications? I am a CFA charterholder, and have worked in/studied/written about finance and economics for over 12 years.
I was previously a data analyst in the fintech space. However, I still enjoy tearing through datasets in my free time.
Finding interesting trends in equity markets. Pulling out insights from business data or from scraping websites. Trying to figure out which starting pitcher will blow up next season. This is what I do to relax. As Sherlock Holmes said…
It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.
I have also helped build digital marketing strategies for companies from startups to established technology businesses.
Organic marketing. Content strategy. Multi-channel campaigns. Pick your buzzword, but it always come back to data-driven decision making.
In addition to writing, I also have experience with video editing, web design and optimization, and working with product teams.
