Michelle Leder
Michelle LederMichelle Leder founded footnoted.org in 2003 to coincide with the publication of her book Financial Fine Print (John Wiley & Sons, 2003). The site was acquired by Chicago-based Morningstar earlier this year and Leder continues to run the site for Morningstar.

Leder first became interested in SEC filings early in her career, while writing about a small Florida bank that was engaged in aggressive accounting during the last real estate boom. As a reporter and later editor, she spent 10 years at daily newspapers in Florida, Connecticut and New York. As a freelance business journalist, her work has appeared in BusinessWeek, The New York Times, Portfolio and Slate, among others. Leder has appeared on Bloomberg TV, CNBC, The Today Show and has been quoted in dozens of newspaper both in the U.S. and abroad, about digging into SEC filings.

Leder holds a degree in economics from Brandeis University. She blogs from footnoted.org world headquarters in Peekskill, N.Y., where she lives with her husband, Scott, their son, Soren, and dog, Kumara, whom she has trained to dig through SEC filings.
