Based in the New York City metro area, I have worked in the capital markets industry for over 10 years where I have held roles as a metals and mining analyst, arbitrage trader, exchange-traded fund developer, and consultant. I conceptualized and co-founded a company to bring to market the first diamond industry and mining equipment ETFs, which were listed on the New York Stock Exchange Arca. 

As an independent analyst and consultant, my work on diamonds and the mining industry has been used globally by institutional investors, management consulting firms, private and public corporations, governments, intergovernmental organizations and universities including Fidelity Investments, HSBC, UBS, Scotiabank, KPMG, Boston Consulting Group, Frost & Sullivan, De Beers, ALROSA, Rio Tinto, the Fiscal Policy Division of the Northwest Territories of Canada, the Ministry of Finance of Namibia, the International Monetary Fund and Duke University's Fuqua School of Business.

I am a regular contributor to industry leading trade journals and websites including the The London Mining Journal, Kitco, and Mining Review Africa, and I am regularly interviewed by prominent media outlets including Reuters, Financial Times, CBC, New York TimesBloomberg, Times of India, Agence France-Presse, Nikkei Asian Review, Fox Business News, Forbes, and The Economist. In addition, I have served as a keynote speaker on the diamond industry at institutional investor and industry conferences.

I am a graduate of the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business with a B.S. in finance
