Mike graduated from Duke University in 2000 with a double major in Economics and Spanish. Upon graduation he joined Lehman Brothers’ Equity Research Department where he worked on the oil team. In 2005 he resigned from Lehman Brothers to join Sanford C. Bernstein as the Commodities Trading Desk Analyst. In this role he wrote commentary and advised investors on various companies in the commodities sector including oil producers, oil services, refining, metals and mining and utilities. Within a couple of years he started writing his own personal “macro” emails where he would comment on a broader range of topics that no one else covered at Bernstein such as foreign exchange and precious metals. These macro emails became extraordinarily popular with clients and he soon found himself traveling all around North American and Europe advising some of the decision makers at many of the largest hedge funds, mutual funds and pension funds on the planet. In January 2010 he became tired of this role and resigned from Bernstein and struck out on his own to form Krieger Asset Management (a family office) and also to write and educate people across the country on what is happening and how to protect against it. Last December, finally sickened by NYC and the culture, he moved his operations to Boulder, CO where he currently resides. His primary goal at the moment is two-fold. Protect his assets and those of my family and spread the word so that as many people in the U.S. can get as financially and mentally prepared as possible. To that end, Mike founded the website https://www.libertyblitzkrieg.com in March of 2012. His stated intention is this: "My number one goal is to help as many people as possible protect themselves from the financial and social calamity that is coming to this planet as a consequence of the actions of the Central Planners and those that play ball with them as a means to enrich themselves at the expense of the species. I am dedicated to restoring Liberty to the United States of America."
