I have been investing in the markets for the last 10 years. My strategies take advantage of the various moves the market makes through different economic cycles. In periods of Volatility, I will take trades that would last several days or weeks. During trending periods, I will take core positions that could last several months. I trade all asset classes and believe you have to be nimble in today's markets . You have to be able to deploy capital into the correct strategies and asset classes that will provide you with the best returns at that point in time. I am an independent trader that formerly worked as an investment consultant for Wells Fargo. I currently own several wireless retail stores and fast food businesses in the United States. I invest as part of my passion and to continuously educate myself and others. I believe in educating new investors on how to properly invest in the market. I believe there is more than one way to make money in the markets. When I was first starting out, I was searching for the holy grail. What I found was there were several ways to make money in the markets. It is more about finding the right strategy that would fit the investor's personality than the strategy itself.

As an award-winning graphic artist I am passionate about my work and love the thrill of new creative projects. Having a style that is clean, contemporary and well balanced allows me to adapt artistically and leave a little piece of me in each project. Turning ideas into reality is my passion.
My work has graced book covers, magazines, printed marketing materials, as well as the world wide web. I have been fortunate to work with industries such as luxury real estate, high end hospitality, fine family dining, investments and finance, addiction and behavioral health.
I am an independent investor. My investment philosophy stems from the teachings of Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger, Seth Klarman, Philip Fisher, and Peter Lynch (among others). I tend to favor quality stocks with favorable future prospects that can be acquired at reasonable or cheap prices.
