About the author

John Lyon

Senior Editor, RobbReport.com

John Lyon is a senior editor at Robb Report magazine who has contributed to the publication, both online and in print, since 2009. While attending UCLA his passions for the written word and contemporary international events pulled him in two radically different directions. The pleasure of writing eventually won out, and he earned a bachelor’s degree in English and a minor in global studies. He has written articles for nearly every category Robb Report covers, though he focuses largely on writing instruments, timepieces, and golf. (His interest in collectibles and antiques often draws him toward more esoteric subjects.)
