As former COO of Seeking Alpha I worked with the marketing, growth, bus dev and technology teams to help drive the growth of the company. I am interested in a mix of low risk long-term investments as well as exciting growth opportunities. Prior to Seeking Alpha I helped found and build 2 technology startups (one in the security field www.camero-tech.com and one internet company www.mystudiyo.com) and worked as a Principal for a Venture Capital Fund. I started my career as an equities analyst working for a number of London-based investment banks including UBS & Flemings.
I use value investing methods of analysis to search out undervalued companies using a combination of financial analysis and a qualitative assessment of management, industry & company fundamentals and circumstances to evaluate the odds of a successful investment. Emphasis is currently on consumer non-durables with strong brands and market shares, but there is no limit to such investments only. Past investments have included oil companies, consumer retail and consumer durables.

I try to generate a couple of high probability ideas (2-3) every year and take very concentrated positions based on those ideas. Over the past 8 years this strategy has generated a 22,87% compounded average return net of all costs and taxes on my investment portfolio, with the strongest returns mostly during the past five years.
Current sectors under coverage by me at Seeking Alpha:

Being born and raised in Queens, New York, I have a deep-rooted affection for this city. At the same time, I love to travel and explore. In my earlier years, I was quite the chess fanatic and had the opportunity to represent my high school in national tournaments. At 17, I achieved a Top-100 U.S. ranking for my age group. I'm a bit rusty these days, but always looking for a good game. Skiing gives me something to look forward to in the winter and I try to take as many trips as possible to the slopes. I'm a huge sports fan, but the constant disappointment that is the New York Mets has lead to my discovery of the beauty of international football and Liverpool Football Club. It's my dream to someday see them play at Anfield in Liverpool.
