Darius spent his entire childhood in and out of homeless shelters with a first-hand view of drug addiction. His humble beginnings have led him to develop a passion for social service that continues to this day as a founding member of Hedgeye Cares, as a junior board member of Domus Kids, and as co-chair of Yale Football’s 4 for 40 mentorship program.
Darius’ expertise on markets and economies has led him to become a frequent on-air contributor to Real Vision, CNN Money, CNN Business, Fox Business, Fox News, Macro Voices, and BNN, as well as an in-print contributor to the Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, Yahoo! Finance, Fortune, NewsBTC, and in Jim Rickards latest book, The New Great Depression: Winners and Losers in a Post-Pandemic World. Darius has also been a featured speaker at various public and private industry conferences, including Bloomberg’s 2019 Diversity Drives Returns summit.
