Sophisticated Investor with emphasis on munis. BA+Masters in Economics. 20 years on the Street at various bulge bracket firms (roughly 10 years as Analyst and 10 as Executive). All the opinions expressed are my own which I do not receive any form of compensation for. I am not selling anything and I do not do social media.
I'm currently a student at the University of Arkansas, studying Finance & Economics. I have a passion for the stock market, investment banking, and venture capital. I believe there are many benefits to be reaped through self-education and exposure to individuals much smarter than myself, and make an effort to capitalize on such education opportunities. Outside of the financial world, I love to go where I don't have cell phone coverage. I love the outdoors, and the complex simplicity that the outdoors offer.

I am from the East Coast. I invest my own portfolio due to poor results with advisors. This has led me into self educating myself on stocks, bonds, cash equivalents, reits and alternatives.
I hope to add Ideas and continue to learn. I love that seeking alpha lets independent investors share their thoughts and insights in a must know space that can easily be manipulated. I tend to focus on shareholder friendly companies that allow access to assets that are productive and long lasting.
