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 management consulting firms, private and public corporations, governments, and institutional investors including KPMG, Boston Consulting Group, Frost & Sullivan, Scotiabank, and the Ministry of Finance of Namibia. My work has been used in research and curriculum at Duke University, Harvard University, and the University of California, San Diego. I am a regular contributor to industry leading trade journals and websites including the The London Mining Journal, Kitco, and Mining.com, and I have been interviewed by, quoted by, and used as a fact checker by prominent global media outlets including Bloomberg TV, The Wall Street Journal, BBC, Fox Business News, CNBC, Reuters, CBC TV and Radio, Businessweek, Forbes, and The Economist. I have also served as a keynote conference speaker for institutional investors on investing in the diamond industry.
I am a graduate of the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business with a B.S. in finance.
