I use market analysis and emerging trends to identify investing opportunities at the macro level - I look for the "big idea" and the company's best positioned to execute. My career includes stints as as a price and wage economist in Washington DC; a market analyst for a consumer packaged goods behemoth; a market strategist for an ad agency; director of Internet research for a MR firm and communications director for an urban school district. In between these more traditional gigs, I've also worked as head writer for a syndicated comedy show and hosted an afternoon radio program in Cincinnati. BA, economics and computer science, University of Maryland MBA, marketing management and quantitative methods, Georgia Institute of Technology. I currently work as a freelance writer and consultant with my business partner, a 2 y/o green cheeked conure named Hambone.
