I am a former technology entrepreneur with over 10 years of experience in trading equities, bonds and options. My investment style can be described as risk-averse opportunism. I believe that markets are rife with inefficiencies that can be exploited to generate outsize risk-adjusted returns. I recently started a hedge fund that trades a data-driven quant strategy; we are not soliciting new investments at this time.

Individual investor with particular interest in any company that is on the cusp of change--for the better. These companies will have at least several attributes in common: They are underfollowed; underappreciated; have a clear, stated strategy for driving profits; management and BOD are perfectly aligned with common shareholders; management team and BOD with a track record of rewarding shareholders; and have near-term catalysts that will have meaningful impact on the business. Simple, right?
