Fara Warner is responsible for editorial strategy on brands including DailyFinance, Moviefone, TechCrunch, and Engadget. She was formerly the editorial director of international special editions at Newsweek/DailyBeast. She is the author of "The Power of the Purse: How Smart Companies Are Adapting to the World's Most Important Consumers--Women." She served as the Howard R. Marsh Visiting Professor of Journalism at the University of Michigan from 2007-2010 and is a former senior writer for Fast Company Magazine and staff writer for the Wall Street Journal. She holds a master's degree in journalism from Columbia University. She lives in New York City.
Laura started her professional life on Wall Street, at the high-flying (and famously hard-landing) firm of Drexel Burnham Lambert. And while the experience opened her eyes early to the perks and perils of high finance, it also convinced her that the place she really belonged was journalism school. Since then she’s had a long and varied career as a writer and editor at publications including the Washington Post, Working Woman and This Old House. The most valuable lesson she learned from the experts there was that houses aren’t that complicated or scary if you take the the time to learn the way they work; the same holds true for managing your money, a lesson she hopes to share with DailyFinance's readers.
Mathew Schwartz began his career in journalism among the ink-stained veterans of a large Gannett newspaper. In his time as an editor there, he worked on nearly every section of the paper, guided the launch of a hip weekly lifestyle magazine for 20- and 30-somethings, and helped lead a major expansion of the paper’s Internet presence as a web editor. As a side gig, he was a staff concert critic, reviewing the likes of Madonna, Barenaked Ladies, Tim McGraw, Gavin DeGraw, Bob Dylan and Ani DiFranco. But it was his talent for parsing numbers that drew him to business journalism and DailyFinance, where he is now responsible for every mistake you see on the site, and most of the ones you don’t. Who, after all, would want to spend their days on the rock star beat when they could be following the money? Not him!
