I am professionally a real estate lender/investor in mortgage workouts, involving distressed parties. This area is undercover because it is not priced on exchanges or easy for large funds to move in and out, it is largely a fragmented market based on county specific oversight as well as explicitly government subsidies make it an interesting area to find value. Recreationally, I am a private pilot, sailor and skier. I speak some Japanese and Spanish and have lived and worked on most continents. I manage friends and family self directed 401K's, IRA's, and HSA's as well as my company investments. About 80% of my net worth is in mortgages or real estate, the remaining is in public exchanges.
I'm a happy go lucky guy. I love the city I live in (Nashville). I'm a devote follower of Ben Graham, Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, John Bogle, Ben Franklin, Charlie Chaplin, Charlie Munger, and you!
