While working at SNL Financial, I wrote articles concerning the banking industry, as well as a weekly wrap up of political issues influencing the financial sector. My beat also included Congressional hearings, industry conferences and a daily stock market overview.

Having worked in IT for almost two decades prior, I leveraged my understanding of technology to write articles on the EMV chip-embedded card technology – a much anticipated change to industry standard.

Credit Union Times – Washington Reporter

As the Washington Reporter at Credit Union Times, I wrote on issues impacting the credit union community. During this time, I interviewed some of the most influential people in the credit union space which provided me with some of my favorite articles to date.

Additionally, I wrote much about the marijuana industry and its attempts to gain access to financial services.

The following three articles trace the origins and path to law of H.R. 1151.
