I am an amateur investor who cares a great deal about realistically analyzing companies. I generally disagree with the idea that the market is quick to 'price in' events correctly. If the market does react to events, I believe it tends to overreact, creating buying or selling opportunities. This philosophy tends to leave me slightly out of touch with the market, since it ebbs and flows to highs and lows that I find unjustifiable. I enjoy criticism, because it makes me a stronger investor with a clearer view of my goals in investing. I work as a contractor for Verizon.
I work as a Senior Associate in a Top 20 CPA and Business Advisory firm. My area of specialty is enterprise cloud software, though I have an extensive professional background in the retail and hospitality industries as well. I have been investing for over 20 years with the primary goals of a comfortable early retirement and philanthropic endeavors.

I have been interested in investing since my first high school economics class. The good news is that I have grown out of my belief in the efficient market theory. It took longer than Santa Claus, but the case for it is a little stronger than "magic reindeer". Now I manage my own investments with the goal of supporting my travel habit.
