I was born in New York in 1970, and moved to Colorado in 2007. A Chartered Financial Analyst, I spent 16 years on Wall Street – as a trader; buy-side analyst; and most notably, a sell-side analyst covering the oilfield service sector at Salomon Smith Barney from 1999-2005.
In 2002, I became deeply interested in Precious Metals; far more so, as global debt and money printing accelerated after the 2008 Financial Crisis – when, in my view, the monetary system permanently broke. By 2003, I was already a well-known Precious Metals commentator; and from 2006-11, worked as an Investor Relations Officer or consultant to dozens of junior mining companies.
In 2011, I joined Miles Franklin Precious Metals as Marketing Director, until leaving in August 2017. The reason being, my intense belief in Bitcoin, and overall interest in the cryptocurrency revolution. To that end, an archive of all content I produced at Miles Franklin – including numerous articles about my unique take on the relationship between Bitcoin and gold – can be found at milesfranklin.com.
I strongly believe in gold’s value as a timeless safe-haven and wealth storage asset – whose demand will be supported by cryptocurrencies’ inevitable usurpation of fiat currency. That said, I view Bitcoin as not only the most impactful technological innovation since the internet itself, but the Future of Money. Which, when broadly adopted, will enable the return of free markets; a renewed entrepreneurial spirit; and above all, financial freedom for “the 99%.” Together, I view Bitcoin and gold as “Twin Destroyers of the Fiat Regime.”
At CryptoGoldCentral.com, I aim to utilize my unique skill set, culled over three decades in the mainstream finance, mining, and bullion industries, to provide unique, real-time insight into the rapidly evolving monetary world – not from a technical perspective, but financial and real-world angles.
I look forward to your joining my journey of monetary salvation, with the aim of surviving and thriving in the years – and generations – to come.
