Entrepreneur with experience starting, growing, and successfully exiting businesses. Technically trained as a scientist. Investor with interests in technology, energy, healthcare, and finance. Particularly interested in deep value situations. Back in 1998-2000 time frame, oil crashed and there were headlines suggesting the world was "awash in oil", and there were predictions of $5/barrel. I took that as an opportunity to jump in, and made a nice nest egg which was seed capital for the businesses I have started. Once again the world believes we are awash in oil. As Mark Twain allegedly noted, history doesn't repeat itself, but it rhymes.
