Jeremy Bowman

Fool since 2011. I write about consumer goods, the big picture, and whatever else piques my interest. I received my MBA from a American University in 2011 and got my undergrad degree at Colorado College in creative writing so writing for the Fool marries those interests perfectly. Previous jobs have included writing for a small-town newspaper in New Hampshire, teaching English in Spain, and managing a variety of restaurants including Five Guys and Dunkin' Donuts. In my free time, I like riding my bike to the beach, searching for the perfect sandwich, and planning far-flung trips that may or may not ever happen.
