I've been in investment management since 1990, currently as the money manager for Worm Capital. I received my law degree from the University of Oregon in 1984, worked as an accountant for the international accounting firm KPMG, then got involved in investing. I've written over 300 columns for The Financial Times, TheStreet.com, Realmoney.com and SeekingAlpha.com.
I began investing in the 90s, when I purchased a few shares of Apple. The shares took off without me--I sold a few months later for what I thought was a shrewd profit--but I was hooked, and I have been researching companies and investing in stocks ever since. I am an avid believer in combining technical analysis and fundamental research, and I have been studying chart reading and researching companies for over twenty years. My technical analysis hero is Thomas Bulkowski, and I find inspiration and guidance in the books of William ONeal.
I grew up in Montana and currently live in Washington State. My goal is financial independence, so that I may devote more time to the cherished things in my life: family, skiing, auto restoration, and investing.
