I am a market enthusiast and part-time trader. I started writing for Seeking Alpha in 2011, and it has been a tremendous opportunity and learning experience. I have been interested in the markets since elementary school, and hope to pursue a career in the investment management industry. I have been active in the markets for several years, and am primarily focused on long/short equities. I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree from Lehigh University, where I double majored in Finance and Accounting, with a minor in History. My major track focused on Investments and Financial Analysis. While at Lehigh, I was the Head Portfolio Manager of the Investment Management Group, a student group that manages three portfolios, one long/short and two long only. I have had two internships, one a summer internship at a large bank, and another helping to manage the Lehigh University Endowment for nearly a year.

I own a diversified portfolio of blue chip investment properties and stocks. I like to invest into companies that have a deep & wide moat - when selling at reasonable prices. My stock portfolio is concentrated with Berkshire Hathaway being the largest position.
I am a retired engineering executive and a committed value and dividend growth investor. I am a proponent of "buy and hold" and reinvesting dividends to compound holdings in stocks. After decades of letting mutual funds manage my retirement accounts, I now manage these funds entirely by myself and am fascinated by the never-ending learning process about investing, companies, their management and Mr. Market's behavior.
I have seriously studied Warren Buffett and his investing approach, as well as his methods of managing Berkshire Hathaway. He appears to be extremely unique and operates BRK with a very high degree of integrity. His success speaks for itself. BRK is unique in the entire world.
