If asked in the early aughts 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 grabbed the bull (markets) by the horns.
Taras is Operations Manager for Azul Partners, overseeing content operations for MetalMiner and Spend Matters as well as company processes and policies. He’s a contributing writer for both of the aforementioned verticals, and 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) in Michigan, Taras has since been published by NASDAQ Community, Seeking Alpha, The Times of Northwest Indiana 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+.
