I began my career as an auditor for a Big 5 accounting firm. I then transitioned to the buy side where I spent 10 years covering domestic and international equities. I also spent 8 years as a short biased equity analyst. I am a CPA and a CFA charterholder.
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.
Currently the President & CEO of a publicly traded startup in the temporary staffing industry, specifically what we call the "On-Demand" sector. I have been in the staffing industry for approx 14 years. I started out as an Account Executive for the largest on-demand provider in the country and have been in the staffing industry ever since.
Enjoy spending time with my wife and 3 beautiful children when Im not working. Doesn't have to be anything fancy, a day at the movies or at the park works just fine for me.
