Jeff has definitely taken a roundabout way to becoming the Editor-in-Chief of BitcoinerX. He has always had a huge interest in history, which led to him receiving a degree in medieval history. At one point he actually thought of becoming a teacher but eventually joined some friends in opening a hobby shop.
Jeff eventually took over sole proprietorship of the business and ran it for over 10 years. He then moved on to online selling and then into gaming journalism. He has spent the last 10 years writing professionally for various websites as well as creating content for many businesses.
A few years back, he began hearing about Bitcoin and the rise of other cryptocurrencies. A proponent of allowing people to take economic power into their own hands, Jeff has enthusiastically supported cryptocurrencies, not to mention the many benefits of blockchain technology. This interest propelled Jeff to becoming a writer for, and later editor of, several cryptocurrency-focused websites. His goal with BitcoinerX is to provide timely news and analysis in an entertaining manner.
Jeff is a lifelong geek and gamer. He tries to keep up with the slew of TV shows and movies that fall into the fantasy/sci-fi/superhero genres, and he still plays pen-and-paper role-playing games on the weekends. He lives in Florida, USA, as he cannot stand cold weather.
