Our Staff


Andrew Fitzgerald

I work in investment analytics and have been investing in the market since I was in high school. I enjoy anything that involves lots of strategy (i.e. a good game of chess), which is why I was naturally drawn to investing and researching companies. Outside of investing, I’m a big fan of the outdoors. In summer, you’re most likely to find me kayaking, camping, and hiking in the mountains.



Chris Norbury

I'm a writer and fiction author who specializes in financial writing. I started as a financial planner more than 30 years ago and branched into private investing over the past 20+ years. I am a self-taught investor with experience in commodities futures, options, stocks, bonds, ETFs, precious metals, mutual funds, and online investing. My financial planning knowledge covers areas such as budgeting, retirement accounts, saving and investing, and money management. I have taught numerous financial planning seminars both professionally and through community education programs.

I have recently published my first book, Castle Danger, a suspense novel set in my home state of Minnesota during one of its most brutal winters. A prequel and sequel to Castle Danger are in progress. I have also published two articles in the Boundary Waters Journal about my solo canoe trips in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness of northern Minnesota. My writing interests and expertise also include opinion pieces, politics, economics, food and wine, and golf.
