Director of Sales
I'm a full-stack developer with a strong interest in programming languages, pragmatic software engineering practices, and performance optimization strategies. A veteran of several startups, my experience ranges from building Node.js apps to modifying the Chromium source code in C++ to architecting high-scalability systems in Go.
Outside of work, I'm a huge fan of baseball, boardgames, and beer. My wife and I can often be found playing music trivia at the local pub or traveling to exotic destinations for some quality beach time.

In The Last 18 Months
I'm a stock market junkie with a passion for digging beneath the headlines and going against the herd on Wall Street. I'm dedicated to educating people in the finance space and arming them with the tools and data they need to take charge of their own portfolios.
Outside of the office, I'm always looking for outdoor adventures; I love multi-day hikes, campfires, canoe trips and classic rock & roll.
When Moving From Bulgaria to the U.S
I'm an overall finance geek and income investor, and my main goal is to bring insightful analysis and ideas to the investors of the world. Beyond Mitre Media, I love all things sports and music, and I live for football season.
Listened To Per Week
With years of experience in financial education, my goal is to make sure that financial writing is as easy-to-read as it is informative.
Outside of Mitre, I help run an independent record label, host a college radio show, and I'm on a constant quest to discover new and interesting bands. When not surrounded by music, I can be found reading a hard-boiled detective novel or out on the tennis court.
At One Time
I cannot think of a better label for the things I love and excel at doing than "Engineering." I like technology, but I LOVE applying technology to solve technical and business problems. My goal is not to keep with what is the latest shiny new thing, but instead to find the latest technology that adds value for myself, my team, and my industry.
The challenge of helping an engineering team and company culture to execute on an extremely ambitious technology roadmap made the choice of joining Team Mitre an easy one.
I'm an online financial media vet. I've led teams, developed successful (and unsuccessful) products, sold a bootstrapped company, raised capital and bought a number of companies. I enjoy continually learning, being able to teach some of the things I've picked up along the way and work with people who are as excited to be a part of a team and vision as I am.
Outside of Mitre, I love all things sports, including surfing and downhill skiing. I'm a Canadian kid who at one point wanted to play in the NHL and still enjoys strapping on the blades for a pick-up game.
In Online Financial Media
Examining Every Buffett Letter
A financial geek by training, I've spent the past several years at the intersection of financial markets and the Web, and I've become passionate about building the best content and analytical tools available anywhere. I help to oversee the daily operations at all Mitre properties, working to support our teams of analysts and developers.
When not in the office, I enjoy travel, reading, and rec league sports in Chicago (specifically flag football and 16" softball).

Using design and creativity, I aim to solve problems and achieve goals with the use of visual, focused solutions.
When not designing, I can be found at the local Mercer Tavern, in the gym and even occasionally on the salsa dance floor.
Exploring Ancient History
Eaten Per Week
I live and breath all things web and enjoy keeping up to date on the latest trends in tech, Apple and software. My role is building Mitre's web products while ensuring that changes are deployed as quickly and easily as possible. Since joining, my knowledge in financial markets has grown exponentially and I greatly enjoy that my position marries both technology and finance.
When I am not plugged in at Mitre, I enjoy listening to an abnormally long list of podcasts, spending time with my family, going to the movies, and travelling whenever possible.
Currently In Use
I am a PhD candidate in computer science at the University of Alberta. My interests include information extraction and web data management. My goal is to transform raw data into knowledge nuggets and, perhaps more importantly, more revenue.
Outside of the office, I’m always looking for ways to stay indoors. I like tinkering with anything that runs software. I sometimes play soccer, piano and Xbox — not necessarily in this order.
I'm an engineer turned investment banker turned hedge fund analyst turned startup guy. I'm interested in bringing Institutional insight and resources to investors everywhere.

With Mark Curry
I am a developer who really enjoys working with front-end web technologies. Since being with Mitre Media, I have been involved in many interesting projects including the rework of the new ETF Screener. The industry that Mitre Media is focused in has always interested me and I look forward to learning more.
When I am not working I love to spend time with my wife and son. Soccer takes up a large part of my free time and when I am not playing I am supporting the only real great team in the EPL, Arsenal.
In The House
I've been passionate about advertising since I was a little girl. I'd talk through the TV shows and become mesmerized when the advertisements came on. The world of advertising is a passion of mine and the evolvement of the industry has been fantastic to experience first-hand. I strive to transfer my knowledge of the industry to help organizations turn ideas, aspirations, and intentions into measurable results.
In my personal time I enjoy walks with my two dogs Gus and Mosley, play flag football and ice hockey, and yearn for the serenity of the Colorado Rockies.
Advertising & Marketing
On The Slopes
I graduated in 2011 with a bachelor's degree in international business. I have been working for Mitre Media since October 2012 where I contribute primarily to Dividend.com.
Outside of the Mitre office, I love New York City, and spending time with my golden retriever.
I've always had a passion for numbers and analytics, whether it's through finance, economics, statistics, or physics. My goal is to apply my knowledge towards helping investors better understand the highly interconnected, and sometimes complex, global market.
Outside of the office, I'm usually found in the dance studio, rehearsing, choreographing, and teaching Ukrainian folk dancing, ballet, and modern dancing.
As a co-founder of Dividend.com, I'm equally passionate about the financial markets and web technologies. My goal is to help make investing more accessible and easily digestible for everyday investors.
Outside of the office, I'm a sports fanatic who roots for the Philadelphia Phillies and Eagles. I'm also an avid sportsman, regularly playing golf, softball, and volleyball. I'm happily married to my wife, Lauren, and I love to spend time with my baby daughter, Vivienne.

I'm the man behind the curtain; I'm an expert in several different programming languages, which assists in continual improvement of web functionality. I persist in studying the latest in web development, which has aided me in building dozens of websites over the years in a variety of different industries.
Outside of work, much of my time is spent enjoying time with my four children and taking them to all of their various activities. Also, I enjoy volunteer work at the local food bank and children's theatre.
I am the founder of a network of consumer-facing websites that reach over 15 million unique visitors per month. The sites include: Snippets, wiseGEEK and CalorieGallery. I also invest in and advise early-stage web startups.
