The Violent Capitalist graduated with a BS in Finance and International Business and a minor in Politics from New York University in 2004. He is also a CFA Charterholder (2009) who has held many roles throughout the industry.
He has been a credit research analyst at an independent credit research firm, an analyst of multi-strategy funds, and involved in sales and management of steel pipes.
In 2007 he founded an investment firm and in 2010 founded a family office.
His interests are in anything with value. He always tries to implement bottom up analysis, sometimes augmented with top down approaches. Those approaches usually lead him to more volatile parts of the market, smaller caps, and foreign companies that aren't as widely researched.
