About me

My name is Akash Kanojia. In my career I've been a bond trader, a fixed-income portfolio manager, a management consultant, a law professor, a legislative staffer, a failed entrepreneur (twice), and a Fed bailout guy. I've also done some small-scale angel investing and sat on the board of a nonprofit for ten years.

I like writing about things I know and sharing my ideas with other people. I'm mostly interested in finance, economics, and energy markets, and I write to organize my own thoughts. Occasionally I get deep into some other topic, and feel like it's worth putting together a note. All that stuff goes on this blog.

I'm open to speaking and consulting opportunities. I also have a side business offering emotional intelligence coaching to lawyers, finance people and startup execs.
