I'm the founder and editorial director of popular online watch magazine and retailer HODINKEE.

I spent a few years at a strategy consulting firm and then a few more at a big Swiss bank. I left to work on HODINKEE full time in early 2009 and never looked back. .

In addition to several credits as a journalist in the likes of GQ, The FT, Esquire, and more, my story has been told in the pages of the New York Times, Departures, and Reuters. I've helped build HODINKEE into a reference-grade media outlet that has the trust of over 1,000,000 users each month. On top my editorial role at HODINKEE, I've designed and launched more than a dozen original products retailed under the HODINKEE brand.

I'm a graduate of the Columbia School of Journalism and have appeared on several live television broadcasts including CNN, BBC, and Bloomberg.
