I shot my first assignment for Smart Money magazine back in January and the issue is out of newsstands. My subject was Jim Moffett of Scout Funds. Jim is the manger of the Scout International Fund and has a degree from Harvard and a MBA from a little university called Stanford. Needless to say I didn’t engage him in any conversation about the stock market or derivatives for fear of making a complete fool of myself.
Here is the tearsheet: (Jim was talking to a co worker who stumbled onto our photoshoot I think I told them it sounded like they were speaking in a foreign language)
And some of my selects that didn’t make the cut:
For someone that manages a fund of $5.1 billion (yes I said billion) you would think Jim would have an ego to match but he was completely gracious and accommodating even when I drug him outside on a blustery January day in Kansas City.
Big thanks to Jim, Kristin and Justin from Barkley for the help coordinating the details of the shoot, Jason Tracy for assisting, and Jane Clark for the assignment.
And Jim if you happen to read this any stock tips are welcome…
