I have been involved with the markets since 2010 and have a deep passion for research and discovery. I started out as a trader, but have since come to realize the value of the business behind the ticker. I am an aspiring CPA who is dedicated to all things financial. I wouldn't call myself a value investor, but when putting my cash to use I always factor in the financial standing of the company as well as what future revenues and cash flows might look like. I'm not afraid to pay for quality and I also just genuinely enjoy investing in and following companies I find interesting. Performance and alpha are king in the investing world. However, the "fun factor" as well as keeping my mind sharp make investing that much more rewarding.
