I'm a 5th year senior at Mississippi State University getting my undergraduate degree in Banking and Finance. I'm part of a group of 8 students at MSU participating in the TVA Investments Challenge where we actively manage ~425k. I'm currently pursuing positions in corporate finance. I plan on getting my MBA after 3-5 years of experience. Most of my time spent outside the realm of finance includes reading John Grisham novels, playing basketball and racquetball, and travelling. I love listening to house music and my favorite shows include White Collar, Suits, Big Bang Theory, Game of Thrones, and The Walking Dead.

Private Investor - Actively manage my investment and retirement accounts.
Trading Methodology - Always looking to hit home runs while slashing singles and stealing bases. (ie I look for long opportunities (GARP) and swing trade while following the major trend. Sometimes use options to gain leverage or safety.)
Trading Frequency - Yearly, monthly, weekly and daily. Differing strategies and time horizons for different stocks and situations.
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.
