I earned a B.A. in English in 2006. After graduating, and during my first corporate job, I became exposed to the world of finance; specifically, my boss explained to me the concept of compound interest, and encouraged me to begin saving for my retirement via my 401(k) plan. What I thought would end up being a short-lived episode in my life of becoming a financially responsible person in the world ended up becoming something much bigger and larger than I could ever have imagined. Starting in 2006, I began teaching myself as much as possible about personal finance. After a while, my curiosity lead me toward the stock market. While becoming familiar with some well-known companies' ticker symbols, I came across a stock with a monster price tag worth tens of thousands of dollars per share: none other than Berkshire Hathaway--Warren Buffett is my businessman idol, by the way. Fast forward to today, and I am still engulfing myself in as much financial literature as possible. I describe my investing style as a mix between Warren Buffett/Charlie Munger, and Benjamin Graham. My investment approach consists of 1) selecting companies that possess a durable competitive advantage, 2) waiting for opportunities to purchase shares of these companies, and 3) trying to hold onto these wonderful businesses for as long as possible.
