I am a long-time investor in both the equity and debt markets, and spent 14 years working in leveraged finance and mergers and acquisitions for Lazard, Credit Suisse, DLJ and Barclays, before turning to full-time investment management. My investing focus is centered around long and short equity positions, with a significant component of options-based positions to enhance returns.
I'm currently a JD candidate at Harvard Law School. Before HLS, I spent three years as a strategy and analytics consultant specializing in the Financial Markets and Wealth Management sectors. I received a BS in Finance from Wake Forest University graduating Phi Beta Kappa, Beta Gamma Sigma, Magna Cum Laude and I was awarded the school's Finance Award which goes to the top finance major.
I consider myself a value investor. I tend to focus on earnings rather that cash flow and I believe in defensive investing.
