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 (which has since, dramatically changed in favor of Bitcoin) – can be found at milesfranklin.com.
I strongly believed in gold’s value as a safe-haven/wealth storage asset until February 2018 – when I sold the last of my holdings in lieu of Bitcoin. I still believe gold will remain valuable – particularly if a “worst-case” political and/or economic scenario occurs. However, I view Bitcoin as the most impactful technological innovation since the internet itself – and thus, the future of money and wealth storage. Which, when broadly adopted, will enable the return of free markets; a renewed entrepreneurial spirit; and above all, financial freedom for “the 99%.”
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.
