I am the founder and portfolio manager of Hypotenuse Capital Management, LLC, a private investment advisor based in Los Angeles. We manage Hypotenuse Capital Partners, LP, a private investment partnership that is open to U.S. accredited investors. Our strategy is fundamental value and we run a concentrated portfolio. Prieviously I was a partner at Royal Capital Management, LLC, a fundamental long/short equity manager in New York where I worked from 2006 until 2012. Prior to my time at Royal, I worked in private equity at Parthenon Capital in Boston and investment banking at Bear, Stearns & Co., Inc.
MicroCaps.com was founded on the emphasis to provide 100% Independent Research to investors. We have two subscription products focused on finding undiscovered NanoCap and MicroCap Ideas. Then we have an Ala Carte Due Diligence product that digs deeper for hedge fund managers since many of them don't have the time to do so. We also have an active investor blog where passionate analysts contribute content to build their reputations within the marketplace.
I reside in the greater Detroit area. During the winter you will find me on the mountain chasing the fresh powder.
I currently work for Citgo Petroleum as a Laboratory Specialty Technican. I'm interested in Energy,Technology and biotech stocks. I consider myself conservative but willing to take some risk. I'm happily married and have two kids. Good advice is always appreciated in my book. I'm looking for good long term stocks like Apple which is my largest holding.
Investing has been my passion for decades. This resulted in my leaving a top-flight position in the field of hospitality. I began investing my personal funds full-time in 2006. Using a primary research-driven approach I generated an annualized gross return of 15.7% (cumulative 328.8%) during the last ten years.
By comparison, during that same period of time (December 31, 2005 to December 31, 2015) the market experienced an annualized return of only 4.9% (cumulative 61.1%) as measured by the S&P 500 price return.
In 2008, I seeded and opened a hedge fund with a personal investment of seven figures and the acceptance of clients. I also earned the Chartered Financial Analyst® designation in 2011.
