NBC Universal Emmy Winning News Producer
Kurt is a brilliant business journalist who has his pulse of some of the greatest minds in finance. His unique insight and ability to see through the obscure balance sheets of business into the soul of the machine make him a fascinating fellow to follow. I have learned much from Kurt about aspects of business and finance I did not even know existed before we were acquainted. I highly recommend him as a journalist, financial adviser, consultant, and executive.
