About me

Occupation Writer, coach, kept man
Location Matthews, NC - North Carolina, United States
Introduction Husband of Roberta, father of Katie and Ben, grandfather to Owen, Piper, Jack and Logan. That's the important stuff. It's now been many years since I was paid to write full-time. I am among the lucky few who actually had his "dream job" -- a three-decade career as a newspaper sportswriter that was capped by an 11-year run as a Chicago columnist. I didn't like the way it ended -- laid off at age 48 -- but I wouldn't have traded my experience for anything. Having been fortunate enough to invest well during a raging bull market, I now live a darn good, retired life in Charlotte, N.C. I am a personal finance writer at DailyTradeAlert.com and SeekingAlpha.com; I am the middle school girls basketball coach at Socrates Academy, an outstanding public charter school; and I officiate youth sports. Oh, and every once in awhile -- when I feel like writing for free (which isn't very often any more), I post here on The Baldest Truth. I'm a very lucky man.
Interests Golf, iced tea, Marquette Golden Warrior Eagles basketball, Carolina Panthers, BBQ grilling, travel to warm places in the winter and cool places in the summer, lovin' on the grandkids.
