I'm an associate editor at Forbes magazine, part of the team responsible for producing our signature franchises: The World's Billionaires, The Forbes 400 and America's Richest Families.

Along with editing these packages, I write about how these rich capitalists make their money and how they spend it. I've ridden on roller coasters with a pair of hidden theme-park tycoons; coaxed a reclusive toy titan into talking at his playroom-cum-office; and entered a liquor baron's Wonka-esque factory.

Another focus has been on shining a light on the darker corners of entrepreneurship. Most notably that included an investigation into the seminar business of Armando Montelongo. Montelongo pocketed $50 million a year by offering seminars on house-flipping. His advice was either worthless (hispanics love pink flamingos in their yard) or downright dangerous (use nothing but a self-directed IRA). My story struck such a nerve with readers--it has been viewed more than 250,000 times online--that Forbes nominated it for a Gerald Loeb Award.
