I'm an investor, a small business owner, a landlord, and I write code. I have a B.S. in Computer Science and an MBA. I like narrowing down my investment choices with the power of a computer, but I realize that is only part of the process. I also need to do the manual work and read the SEC filings and other information to solidify my thesis. I like value investing and distressed investing, but I'll do anything that has a good risk/reward profile.
I'm a retired U.S. Air Force officer and private investor - investing in commercial and residential real estate, equities, options, currencies, bonds and commodities. I search the globe for profitable investment opportunities. I also advise individuals on reaching investment goals and have spoken to many investment groups. I've participated in numerous media investment events (including with Money Magazine, CNBC, Yahoo Finance, The CBS Early Show, Internet Radio and CNN/Money). I've also traveled extensively and have twice taught at China Agricultural and Technology University in Beijing.

Interested in quantitative, algorithmic & statistical approaches to the markets as well as analysis and application of global macro themes and more traditional approaches (value and growth investing.)
