Attorney and long time investor. I became very interested in the stock market at age 12 when my grandparents started talking to me about their Microsoft stock. I found the whole thing fascinating. I have invested ever since. I was never interested in working as a money manager, however, as I can't stand a lot of the rules placed on them by their supervisors. I want to be free to invest in what I deem the best companies at the right time. I am an academic at heart and decided to attend law school with the hopes of helping the little guy. Most of what I do involves pursuing sums of money from large entities for individual clients. This is extremely rewarding and I have found that it is a great way to earn a living while still feeling good about what you do. I get to give a voice to the oppressed who are often victims of a society that would rather forget about them and push them off to the side. I am very fortunate and thankful to be in this industry. I hope you enjoy my articles for SA. Please contact me whenever you have a question or just want to chat.
