I'm the author of "Red-Blooded Risk" and "The Poker Face of Wall Street," and a co-author of "A World of Chance." My day job is working for AQR Capital Management. I also am a columnist for Wilmott and Quantum magazines, and write for a lot of finance and poker periodicals; as well as teach classes and speak at conferences. I serve on the Editorial Board of the Global Association of Risk Professionals and am a member of the National Book Critics Circle. In past lives I've been a professional poker player, trader, finance professor, portfolio manager and head of mortgage securities.
I live on the upper west side of New York City with my wife. I have a son who is an undergraduate at the University of Chicago, and a daughter in high school.
