Educated as an economist, my early career focused on commercial banking and management and financing of capital asset. My middle career moved into construction management and RE feasability analysis. The final phase of my career involves supervision of thousands of appraisals of RE and Personal Property each year. Litigation over valuations is a common part of my work. For the past 15+ years my investments have been weighted toward REITs and precious metals. I'm an economist, analyst, appraiser, stratigist and manager with five decades of experience.
