Well hello. A bit about who I am.

I currently live in Chicago via Boston, Nashville, Chicago (the first time) and Los Angeles.

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.

I am a CFA charterholder, and have worked in/studied/written about finance and economics for over 12 years.

Data Analysis and Business Intelligence

I was previously a data analyst in the fintech space, with experience using Python, SQL, and R.

My time in marketing analytics allowed me to:
• Create new products
• Build strategies to address key business objectives including customer engagement and conversions
• Offer clear, actionable, data-based insights across the organization.

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 in baseball will take a leap to the next level.

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.

Digital Strategy

I have also helped build digital marketing strategies for companies from startups to established technology businesses.

• Organic marketing
• Content strategy
• Multi-channel campaigns.

Whatever the goal, 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.
