In my own words

I look really ‘serious’ in this picture…but that’s on purpose.


First of all, because I am always a bit self-conscious in pictures and, secondly…

Because investing is serious business!

I work hard, work as smart as possible and demand results and accountability in everything I do.

I also understand the finite nature of life and try to have as much fun as possible doing what I love.  And one of the things I love to do most is… invest.

My experience touches many different industries and different structures. I’ve started and built several multi-million portfolios, each privately funded and capitalized. I’ve had real shareholders and limited partners to answer to. One of this things I wanted to do after I graduated college (and made a well timed exit from a soon to be bailed out financial institution) was to ‘get my hands dirty.’  To learn about businesses from the ground up. Learned how money is made (and lost) and…how the most profitable investments work.

This means I have a one-of-a-kind insight into providing valuable information and ideas you can profit from. I’ve made my share of mistakes and had my share of successes…and every ounce of my experience and effort goes into helping you.

About My Investing Style

I’m a bottom up evaluator. A market agnostic. I buy assets at significant discounts to their intrinsic value.

This may sound simple…but it’s not easy.

It requires turning over a lot of rocks, looking at the most arcane of information and always seeing the forest through the trees.

Thanks for visiting and I hope we can work together to let me do the heavy lifting for you.

Thank you.
