I use market analysis and emerging trends to identify investing opportunities at the macro level - I look for the "big idea" and the company's best positioned to execute.
My career includes stints as as a price and wage economist in Washington DC; a market analyst for a consumer packaged goods behemoth; a market strategist for an ad agency; director of Internet research for a MR firm and communications director for an urban school district.
In between these more traditional gigs, I've also worked as head writer for a syndicated comedy show and hosted an afternoon radio program in Cincinnati.
BA, economics and computer science, University of Maryland
MBA, marketing management and quantitative methods, Georgia Institute of Technology.
I currently work as a freelance writer and consultant with my business partner, a 2 y/o green cheeked conure named Hambone.
I only look at stocks that have the possibility to double over a twelve month period and stocks in which the risk/reward ratio payout is high. In addition I focus on swing trade opportunities.
I focus more on valuations and risk/reward metrics as opposed to what make companies tick.
I have been a professional investor for over 20 years and during the past several years an economics analyst and financial writer for capital.gr, the biggest economic news portal in Greece.
I have managed money from time to time and have also done some seed venture capital projects in the past.
