Private investor who started at the age of 16 years old with a joint account with my dad. I'm now more than 50-years old. I came up through the finance ranks starting my career at Arthur Andersen & Co. I became a CFO of a private company in my early 30s and was lucky enough to be able to retire many years ago after being in the right place at the right time. I retired as the President of a $400 million partnership marketing company. My investment philosophy is to focus on companies that have the following characteristics: - Rock solid balance sheets - Outstanding FCFs - Growing revenues - Expanding margins - Strong management team focused on driving LONG-TERM STAKEHOLDER VALUE! I perform all my own due diligence and build all my own models. My motto is SLOW AND STEADY!!!
