If asked a couple years ago whether he’d be reporting on, writing and creating video about the metals market, Taras would’ve said, “You’re crazy!” But, when it comes to the world of metals sourcing for MetalMiner, he grabs the bull (markets) by the horns.
Taras is Managing Editor of MetalMiner and Spend Matters – he writes for and edits the blog, leads the video production department for the company, and heads editorial strategy for Spend Matters Network. He also throws in his fair share of running the office dishwasher.
First faced with the joys of supply and demand in his IB Economics course (taught by a boisterous former CME trader) at the International Academy in Michigan, Taras has since been published by NASDAQ Community, Seeking Alpha and others. He has also previously written for American Theatre magazine, the Kalamazoo Gazette and Metro Detroit’s Between the Lines.
Taras has a master’s in journalism from the Medill School at Northwestern University, produces documentary film when outside the office, and considers himself an advocate of good craft beer. He’s also on Google+.
