- CEO at Red Mushroom, Co-founder, EVP at MarketWatch
- Middlebury College, Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies
I am an American living in Beijing. I am bilingual and have experience working in both the US and China. I co-founded CBS MarketWatch in 1997 and stayed until the sale in 2004 to Dow Jones. I was never a journalist, and instead worked in several business roles over the years, the last as head of the MarketWatch consumer Internet business.
I am currently an investor in/advisor to several startups (including Stocktwits) and provide China consulting services while figuring out the next big gig.
I have 6 academic years of formal Chinese language studies, an MA in China Studies from Johns Hopkins SAIS and a BA from Middlebury College. I have lived and worked in China on and off for over 8 years since 1989, and continuously in Beijing since mid-2005. I am often quoted in major media such as Bloomberg, Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, Reuters, New York Times etc.
Most recently I was CEO of Red Mushroom... See More
