Connor McMahon (actively looking for work opportunities, resume linked on website) has a bachelors degree in business from the University of Saint Thomas ('07), an MBA from Texas Tech University ('11), and is a current doctoral candidate in strategic management. He is currently freelance retail/financial analyst.
Additionally, he is a disenfranchised baby-boomer trapped in a millennial body. Interests include international retail industry analysis, particularly brick and mortar, advanced quantitative statistical methods, and all things 80's.
He is also desperately seeking writing, analysis, contract, and long term employment positions in this sorry excuse for an economy. If anyone has any opportunities available, I'm VERY amenable.

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.
