Do your own due diligence and don't trust everyone. Don't forget, financial statements only provide historical information and should not be your only source of analysis.
Studied in southern Louisiana obtaining my BA concentrating in management. In college I was a member of Gamma Beta Phi, Treasurer of Phi Beta Lambda and President of Omicron Delta Epsilon. Received my MBA from Richmond College in London, England in 1996. I enjoy economics and more the macro side of it vs the micro but they do go hand in hand.
My focus is on real estate and REIT investments. I serve on the boards of a number of private and closely held real estate corporations and LLCs. I also serve as a trustee and/or on the investment committee of a number of non-profit organizations.

I have studied to ply my trade in finance with a bachelors in accounting. In 2014, I developed an app to access corporate disclosure materials at the SEC. My grandparent’s home was filled with valuing investing paraphernalia and, naturally, I became interested in the stock market.
