Personal Life

My wife Joanne, for 27 years, passed away on May 16, 2012 from ALS, better known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

For details of a fundraiser for ALS research, please see My Wife Joanne Has Passed Away; Stop and Smell the Lilacs.

I remarried in June of 2013 as noted in Celebrating Life: I Got Married on Friday.


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.

Please check out my photography website Mish Moments!
