I started my career as a trader at one of the nation's largest brokerage firms. I also have work experience in both commercial real estate underwriting and real estate investment trusts. More recently, I worked in-house for a Fortune 500 energy company and I currently study real estate law. I have a bachelor of science degree in economics from Vanderbilt University. Besides legal work, I manage a private equity and real estate portfolio.
Just a citizen trying to learn the Dismal Science.
"Portfolio diversification is for idiots. You can't diversify enough to know what you're doing. You've got to do your homework and play your best bets" Mark Cuban
"Put all your eggs in one basket and then watch that basket very carefully. Diversification is Protection against Ignorance" Warren Buffet
"There are known knowns; there are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns; that is to say there are things that, we now know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns – there are things we do not know, we don't know." Donald Rumsfeld
I am 24 years old and am a part-time trader who uses a technical investing style in selecting stocks. I like to trade growth stocks that soar to the moon and do not look back. I am also employed full time as an environmental consultant in the D.C. area.
