I spent five years as an implantable neurological device sales rep and am now earning income as a commercial risk broker and small cap biotech investor/trader. I enjoy small cap stock analysis and speculative trades. My patience and understanding of market psychology help me get by. I also enjoy traveling to warmer climates and crossfit workouts.
I am an individual investor in a quest to minimize portfolio rotation.
I am agnostic in terms of growth vs value, but lacking the time, the resources and (most importantly) the brains, I tend to look more among the latter set of opportunities.
I am professionally versed in the European upstream O&G arena, but skeptic on its future (and optimist about the clean-tech momentum of California).
One could argue I should have an edge in European stocks: I am from Spain and based in the UK, but like Buffett says, it's far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price. So my portfolio is OW US and UW Europe.
N.B. If some of my comments are overly cynic, don't be offended, just an invitation to look after your $ more carefully.

Continues to devote entire life to public service through not-for-profit enterprises focused on the arts and education. Brand new to investing by way of very modest inheritance in a couple of handsfull of fairly conventional positions. Primary investment goal is to not lose the investment while learning about investments. At the end of the day, it would be a good thing to not be viewed as an idiot.
