I began my professional career as a capital markets lawyer at the New York firm Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft. In 2010, I returned to Notre Dame (’05 undergrad) for my MBA and graduated ('12) with an Investments concentration. I currently work as an equity analyst for an asset manager.

Born and raised in the USA, graduated with a degree in Finance then worked at a multi-strategy global hedge fund for about 4 years analyzing stocks all over the world. In 2007 I left the USA and moved to China to study Chinese and start a business. Now, I am the CEO and Co-founder of eFin which provides wall street level research to main street investors via a proprietary algorithm. Our eFin scoe that takes into consideration hundreds of factors to provide the best period of time to make an investment in a stock.
Nevertheless, 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”. I have had my share of busts and winners and have gotten wise enough to always look at both sides of every investment no matter how negative or optimistic the situation is.
Contrarian, patient investor, looking for long term growth. Attracted to core industries like energy. Also looking to allocate small portfolio percentages to arenas that may produce explosive growth, such small cap Bakken oil producers. Interested in macro economics, so SA provides insight and thinking from many different minds on many topics that are relevant to me. Far more reading and browsing than commentating...

CIIA certificate holder who has worked several years for leading financial institutions. Passionate about analyzing any kind of stocks to find out their real value (at least what in my opinion is their real value). When good undervalued stocks are found, they are usually personally acquired (and I am used to short overvalued stocks with put options).
