Art historian, photojournalist, and Fool writer Seth Jayson is a curious Iron Range boy who relishes the challenges of living cheaply and investing successfully. He has degrees from Carleton College, New York University, the University of Missouri, and some Internet divinity school that purports to be located in Utah.
He washed up on the shores of Fooldom after stints at newspapers and magazines across the U.S.A. During past lives, his work appeared in places like The New York Times, National Geographic Traveler, and Burlington Magazine, and on his mother's refrigerator door.
As the kind of nerd who never lets ignorance stop him from disassembling expensive machinery, he's interested in computers, software, and every other kind of gee-whiz technology out there. As an investor, he's partial to damaged goods and companies with great margins.
Among his favorite things are bike rides, fresh bread, red wine, stinky cheese, and warm golden retrievers. If he can get all of that in one day, plus poke a little fun at the world's smarty pantses -- himself included -- all the better.
