I am a buyside analyst with a medium-sized asset management firm and have been in the investment business for several decades, the majority of that time on the sell side of the business. For my own account, I am a long-term investor and trade my own account infrequently, as I look for either best-of-breed companies trading at depressed prices due to cyclical but temporary factors or small-to-medium-sized companies with promising "disruptive" technologies that have superior growth potential.

I have been employed in many aspects of financial services in my first 18 years of being in the workforce. I administered and managed 401(k), defined benefit and other forms of retirement plans for firms with assets as large as $150 Million and populations of near 4,000 for over 10 years. My last 8 years I managed the operations of two small boutique High Net Worth investment advisory firms, including portfolio building, monitoring, cash flow management, and securities analysis. I left that business, returned to school and received my Bachelors Degree in financial forensics, which combines aspects of criminal justice and accounting. While in school I became a bookkeeper for a local not for profit and now lead the organization as its executive director. I am currently returning to school to pursue my MS in Not for Profit Management and Leadership and eventually hope to combine my skills from my BS and MS for a forensic accounting firm.

Founder of Disruptive Tech Research – a technology research and advisory firm serving the investment management community.
We provide registered investment professionals and qualified firms with independent, targeted research to support the generation of investment ideas.
We focus on patent-filing activity to identify the most promising disruptive technology trends early. Then, we employ an original, bottom-up fundamental research approach to uncover micro- and small-cap ideas that are underfollowed, underappreciated and undervalued.
Our mission is to provide clients with differentiated, actionable and thorough fundamental research at a cost effective price.
We’re 100% independent. That means absolutely no pay-to-play arrangements, no hidden agendas and no hype. Just solid research. And yes, we eat our own cooking.
I started my investment career at Morgan Stanley, where I helped direct over $1 billion in in institutional capital. After growing bored with the monotony of asset allocation studies, investment policy statements, manager searches and evaluations, and Retirement Plan Service Provider RFPs (among other things), I left and co-founded Wall Street Daily, which quickly became one of the web’s largest financial publishers with a daily circulation of more than 700,000 readers.
In 2014, I founded Disruptive Tech Research to pursue my investing passion, and fill the void in the market for high-quality, 100% independent research on disruptive technologies.
I have been fortunate to appear regularly on CNBC’s Closing Bell, as well as be mentioned in other media outlets, including in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Morningstar and MarketWatch. I earned my MBA from the Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins College, which is also where I met my beautiful wife.
