I manage my investments personally. I spend a couple hours per week reading articles and research on each security I own. I am not a professional by any stretch of the imagination, but enjoy reading about ideas people have. I try to put articles out that appeal to both the beginning investor as well as the seasoned veteran. I hope you enjoy reading my articles and will take the time to comment on them.
I have spent all 10+ years of my professional career in the genetic laboratory space both on the research and clinical side. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Biology and Chemistry with an emphasis on Molecular Genetics and Biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. In 2013 I received my MBA from Cardinal Stritch University.
I started following the stock market in 2007 and have found that I really have a passion for learning and trying to help individuals understand complicated topics. After getting my feet wet in an investment club and personal investments I decided to share my ideas on Seeking Alpha as I enjoy talking stocks with anyone that will listen. Additionally I feel I have some interesting perspectives to offer.
