I am an independent investor with a background in finance & marketing. My investment philosophy is focused on value growth or special situation investing with an added focus on the O&G sector. I am also interested in shareholder activism and issues related to corporate governance.
I am a Retired Hedge Fund Partner. I worked extensively on Wall Street as a derivatives trader. I was part of the team that started the credit derivatives business at Citibank. I was a credit investor at Natixis and ultimately worked for GMP Investment Management in Toronto.
I am currently managing the family portfolio.

I am a Hanna-Barbera cartoon character created in 1959, a pink anthropomorphic mountain lion sporting an upturned collar, shirt cuffs and a green hat. If you find yourself taking investment advice from a pink lion with a green hat, you have most likely ingested some sort of hallucinogen. Step away from the computer, put on some Allman Brothers and go lie down on the couch for a while. Just close your eyes if the ceiling starts to melt.
