I am a 15 year veteran of the buy-side, with over a decade of experience in Investment Management, at one time overseeing several billion dollars in hedge fund assets for institutional clients. Currently, I advise wealthy families on their investment portfolios as well as trade my own money. Articles on Seeking Alpha are meant to be a snapshot of my views, but do not necessarily always reflect my portfolio. I also try to write on controversial and contrarian topics.All money received from Seeking Alpha activities is currently being donated to various charities, including the World Food Program and UNICEF.

just an average joe investor . Change from aggressive growth to growth income so I could pay the bills.
But had to still keep one hand towards capital gains . Enjoying reading the posts and comments.
Been with SA almost from their start . I have a beer can for a brain so I thank everyone for filling it up with investment ideas and knowledge .
I make concentrated investments in companies selling at a significant discount to my estimate of intrinsic value. My goal is to discuss attractive investment ideas or to present information that encourages readers to critically assess their own investing ideas from a new perspective.
