My experience working at the hedge fund and running my own business has improved vastly my investment making decisions. I believe Warren Buffett said it best “I am a better investor because I am a businessman and a better businessman because I am an investor”.
All my investing knowledge is self-taught by reading books, company filings, blogs, financial websites, forums, magazines and newspapers. Additionally some moocs were helpful, too. I especially like the class about valuation by Mr Damodaran despite having quibbles with the capm (risk=past volatility).
My academic background is in industrial engineering with a German university diploma.

I have a professional background of working with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Bear Stearns, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Although I am an economist (and probably because of that fact), I am adept at being resourceful and thinking in a multidisciplinary fashion. For this reason, my professional experience only reflects a wide perspective that I have gained through the years and should not connote an air of authority.
