I'm a former Private Equity executive that quit to begin buying technology companies. After successfully buying and selling private technology companies on my own I run a larger PE backed technology company as CEO.
I began investing and reading about investing as far back as high school. I not only graduated at the top of my top university class, but also taught corporate finance. Later got my MBA from another top school and graduated as valedictorian. I've made millions of dollars trading my own personal account, particularly long calls on technology stocks such as AAPL, GOOG, and BIDU.
