Education: Engineer (Ms. Sci. Eng.) and PhD My investment interests are focused on the global "macro picture" - with particular emphasis on resources and commodities. I am only interested in long-term positions - typically 4-10 years.

I focus on investments in the oil & gas & MLP sectors with an eye for dividend income growth and long-term capital appreciation. I typically allocate a portion of my own portfolio and devote some of my Seeking Alpha articles to small and medium sized companies offering compelling risk/reward propositions. I am an engineer, not a qualified investment advisor. While the information and data presented in my articles are obtained from company documents and/or sources believed to be reliable, they have not been independently verified. Therefore, I cannot guarantee its accuracy. I advise investors conduct their own research and/or consult a qualified investment advisor. I explicitly disclaim any liability that may arise from investment decisions you make based on my articles. Thanks for reading and I wish you much success with your investments.

semiconductor = silicon. Austin = silicon hills. Hence "siliconhillbilly".

I am an e-Money specialist and Austrian School economist from George Washington University focused on expanding the circulation of nonpolitical digital currencies. My career has included senior influential posts at Sumitomo Bank, VISA, VeriSign, and Hushmail.
Old Geezer that listened to parents that lived through the Great Depression. Am a USAF veteran and proud grandpa of twelve grandkids. I am trying to learn enough to be a good investor and have met many great and tolerant (I ask a lot of questions) people here on SA.
I am an individual investor in a quest to minimize portfolio rotation.
I am agnostic in terms of growth vs value, but lacking the time, the resources and (most importantly) the brains, I tend to look more among the latter set of opportunities.
I am professionally versed in the European upstream O&G arena, but skeptic on its future (and optimist about the clean-tech momentum of California).
One could argue I should have an edge in European stocks: I am from Spain and based in the UK, but like Buffett says, it's far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price. So my portfolio is OW US and UW Europe.
N.B. If some of my comments are overly cynic, don't be offended, just an invitation to look after your $ more carefully.

Let's see, Veteran (Vietnam era), Commercial Artist, picture framer, industrial engineer & corporate executive (once upon a time), small business owner and operator, Ayn Rand fan, Libertarian (and no, its not a synonym for "Republican" or "Conservative"), and history buff. Serious investor, I need to earn money from my assets, and I'm of the age where I pull money out to help put food on the table. I like to fish, but just as with my investing, I am a "meat fisherman", I only kill what I plan to consume.
