I was born in Toronto, lived in Phoenix for 20 years and now in Coronado, CA with the Mrs. (20 years, 14 Canadian years), two awesome kids and two dachshunds (Bagel and Lindzee). Schools I attended and even graduated from include—University of Western Ontario, Arizona State University and The American Graduate School of International Management (Thunderbird). I am focused on the innovation in personal finance and do-it-yourself investing, but I am a sucker for a great idea and entrepreneur. I make early stage investments though Social Leverage. My current start-up is called StockTwits and I am a co-founder and CEO. The company was founded in 2008 and is venture backed. I also manage a hedge fund (Lindzon Capital Partners) and have done so since June of 1998. It does not take new capital. In the Summer of 2006, I created Wallstrip which was hosted by Lindsay Campbell. With a hard working crew we created over 300 shows. In May 2007, Wallstrip was acquired by CBS. I moved out west to play golf, but now rarely do. My hobbies include driving my kids around and staying awake. I am in pursuit of the perfect sleep solution. Endless bad ideas—trust me!
