Computer science by education, entrepreneur by practice. I have founded and owned several small businesses in the consumer credit and distribution industries, but I have always had a passion for investing. I prefer to look for undiscovered/undervalued companies where there are material, identifiable catalysts to create value for investors. While I am not solely focused on small and micro cap growth stories; this does happen to be where most of my ideas are originated from as traditional wall street firms have ignored the space and management tends to be more approachable.
