I am a freelance financial writer. After earning a bachelor’s in journalism, I went to work as a Long Island regional correspondent for the New York Times. While we covered all types news affecting the region where I was born and raised, I quickly gravitated toward its burgeoning business sector. I largely interviewed company CEOs on what they considered their “secrets of success” and their plans for future growth. I became smitten with the ever-changing dynamics of the business world; went on to cover finance for numerous other publications; and never looked back.
