Going to school for a degree in Finance. I enjoying learning about investing, and have a passion for knowledge and life, and literature and the collected thoughts and wisdom of others. Helping people understand their financial choices in life and how it impacts their future is one of my main driving forces within my own life and a major goal to improve upon.
I started investing and researching companies when I was 15 years old and have since gone on to earn my BBA in Finance from the University of North Texas. I find myself particularly interested in researching companies who are temporarily distressed, or with significant room for improvement. I firmly believe that these kinds of companies, combined with a strong management team can offer some of the most undervalued investment opportunities.
