Columbia's students awarded me their highest accolade -- Golden Nugget Professor status" at their instructor-evaluation website ( from 2010 to 2014.

In 2002, I co-founded West End Advisors, LLC, an investment advisory firm that provides investment management and financial consulting services to small businesses and family investment offices. I am currently a senior advisor to the firm.
