Personal Life

My wife Joanne, for 27 years, passed away on May 16, 2012 from ALS, better known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. I am proud to have raised through my website, about $500,000 for the Les Turner ALS foundation. I was their 2012 man of the year. I remarried in June of 2013 to Liz Hintz. Joanne’s best friend Kathy was my “best man” at the wedding.


When not writing about stocks or the economy I spend a great deal of time on photography and in the garden. I have over 80 magazine and book cover credits.
