I am a market enthusiast and part-time trader. I started writing for Seeking Alpha in 2011, and it has been a tremendous opportunity and learning experience. I have been interested in the markets since elementary school, and hope to pursue a career in the investment management industry. I have been active in the markets for several years, and am primarily focused on long/short equities.
I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree from Lehigh University, where I double majored in Finance and Accounting, with a minor in History. My major track focused on Investments and Financial Analysis. While at Lehigh, I was the Head Portfolio Manager of the Investment Management Group, a student group that manages three portfolios, one long/short and two long only. I have had two internships, one a summer internship at a large bank, and another helping to manage the Lehigh University Endowment for nearly a year.

I'm a cartoonist, illustrator, writer and editor. I have been a freelance editorial cartoonist and opinion columnist for the Palm Beach Daily News for 23 years and contribute to marketing and communications campaigns in a variety of industries, often at the board and upper management level.
As a publications designer, I have been a design editor and art director for American Media, Inc. and launch and redesign magazines under contract. As such, launched ValueRich magazine, a publication for the small-cap investment community and served as editor in chief for four years.
I was intimately involved when the publishing, graphics and printing industries were among the first to be storm-tossed by digital disruption in the 1980s, and I have been an avid observer of the phenomenon as it continues to occur in sector after sector. This is a particular area of focus in my commentary.
