I'm deputy editor of the Forbes wealth team responsible for our signature Forbes 400 and World Billionaires Lists. I've spent years covering some rich personalities. Highlights include shadowing billionaire art collectors at Art Basel, interviewing Israeli President Shimon Peres about a Hollywood producer, and arguing with Donald Trump about his brand value. I'm also an adjunct professor of journalism at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism. I earned my BA from Tufts University with a focus on international relations and my MS from the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism. I was born in Brazil, bred in Texas and somehow made my way to Manhattan. Send me tips and ideas, I'll keep them confidential: email@example.com. Follow me on Twitter at @kblankfeld.
