I am an experienced businessman and entrepreneur from an early age. My range of experiences, from hauling wheeled carts of computers & toner thru the city streets in Philly, selling AD@D Insurance at the age of 15 for JCP, to Financial Executive roles
To my families 60 year plus running 401k TPA (non producing/fiduciary). My current *personal & Family* investing philosophy is all about Parts, Patents & Brands. I've found great success applying this filter within Media, Tech, Industrial, Communications and have found a most effective way to best invest around the Internet of Things. I am an expert in businesss marketing, prospecting, sales and territory management.
I Started in the Financial world, Oct. 5th 1998. I've always been told, and have proven to be a 'thought leader' within my circles. I am Fusion sales trained and have been extensively Executive Coached, which is a tremendous cost and an amazing resource provided only to the right key employees (at the time).
I am 'A Leader' in my Field, and tagged as 'an influencer' within my network. I am an expert in annuities, Mutual Funds, Life, 401k Planning and plan documents.
Demographically, I AM A Xennial - not Gen X nor Millennial. Meaning I understanding about and am capable of effectively communicating with Millennial aged groups & can then "translate the ethos' to The Boomers, who are truly confused and baffled by this new generation. This is a highly desired skill set that employers seek.
As a parent I am very involved in today's youngest generation; who only know a world of VR/AR; voice searching, 'smart clothing', delivery via Amazon & and so deeply tied into technologies & social media. ** A Xennial is defined as the 'sandwiched' 1970's birthdate age group; YEARS are b/w 1971-1978, or so. I am a resource across industries and am always researching many topics, willingly sharing ideas within the SA community. I expect my time to be mutually rewarded; and am available to listen to most any unique investing opportunities. (I DO welcome business propositions. I am happy to listen and advise; please DM me to initiate the contact )
Key terms: Executive, Corporate Business Development, Strategic Relationships, Sales & Service; Sales Teams. I am well versed in the Green Energy Sector. In fact;,I helped coordinate the FIRST EVER financial industry 'carbon neutral' (GREEN) Conference. A Neat fact.
My degree is specialized; I started college prior to my High School graduation. The degree was customized and is best described as: The Business of 'Media Tech', Telecommunications with Anthropology Communications Theory. So; Communications, Media, PR, Marketing rolled into 'Telecommunications, Business' and Anthropology.
I wrote My College thesis about 'Satellite Radio' years prior to the industry launching.
In Rome, Italy, is where I best studied the Anthropological Communications Theory, as a Graduate of Temple University in Rome, Italy. Well rounded, globally seasoned and am proud to say; NO SILVER SPOON! I am Self Made. All of these experiences have shaped my life and provided me with unique and well appreciated opportunities. As said, no silver spoon.. Post study travels and adventures criss crossed the world.
**Living abroad opens your mind to seek out and find the brightest, best attributes all people and cultures share. We do all share the same essential life goals, we all are capable to achieve our goals. The world we live in requires us to work together towards achieving peace and successful collaboration! Close your eyes & open your mind; Look at what you'll find. We are mostly a world full of good people. No matter the cards life deals you, never fold.

My Family runs a 60 year old TPA. In 8th grade; reconciling Pension Plans as a side job was 'normal'. Our TPA is fiduciary and 'non producing' legally... Meaning we have NO allegiance to any product, Fund Family, nor Brokerage. ** This way; you will know that we must provide completely neutral advise & navigation - for most any type of K plan, pensions.
From record keeping to documentation; keeping compliant with always changing IRS and DOL Regs is our job; so business owners and advisors can focus in their jobs!! A TPA guides the entire 'advising process' for all of the other pros required. Every client is different, we focus mostly within the SMB market. (Small/mid sized). Our firm has thrived/survived as 90% consolidation occurs within the industry. (Paychecks, ADP, Ascensus/Vanguard, Hartford, Nationwide to American Funds). OUR pricing has NOT quadrupled due to the new regulations. Why do you allow other firms to quadruple fees... thus TAKING YOUR MONEY?? These new DOL rules have made costs of administrative duties rise @ fourfold! This is YOUR RETIREMENT $$... Think....If you can save your business 3-7k$ per year; what are The 'Compounded' savings if simoly reinvested at an average rate of 7% returns; over 20 years? For easy math; Use 'the rule of 72' = Your $Money$ doubles at a 7% return every 7 years... thus 72... Our pricing can put hundreds of thousands back into your pocket; over the business's lifetime. This is meaningful money that represents years of extra work ... Plus; the savings must be non discriminatory- so saving the costs also will reward your employees; and reward them for their accomplishments. It's a lifetime of working... for all. So, Look into it!!
My work experiences includes the designing and launch of numerous Nationally Sold financial products. Creating and managing revenue generating marketing campaigns, with complete ownership of the relationships and my role in partner accounts. I have worked with and co-managed hundreds of wholesalers, nationwide, working with the best. I am well traveled, currently residing outside Philadelphia with my incredible family. I am a passionate music & media lover, a saltwater fish keeper (when I can) and mostly a Father, Husband and play the Djembe (a Jedi Drummer) for the Grammy Nominated band, Www.mamamac.net
If you read all of this, thank you. I'm always available for intellectual conversations. I'm looking for business leads and for sharing research ideas about investments. I have a Macro view and tend to write in an older fashioned & longer style. It's me.. so if you don't like it... don't read it! Sincerely ....

I am currently work as a manager in a trading firm based in Mumbai, India. I have traded index futures and currencies for the past four years on my personal account and professionally.
Completed my MS in Financial Engineering from NYU-Poly, and BS in Computer Science from Mumbai University.
My primary philosophy is to identify strong macro driven trends in currencies, index futures, commodities and occasionally in individual stocks, early on. Generally these are created by central bank actions, elections, or a financial/military crisis.
I have been a dividend investor since my retirement in late 2003. I diversify by sector, domestic vs. international, and by cap size. I Invest in stocks that pay dividends. I am risk averse and limit my investment in a single equity to 1% of my total assets or less. As a result of this 'rule', I have more than 100 equities in my portfolio. I ma interested in Closed End Funds.
Deep value, contrarian investor with a very long term outlook (35 + years). Believe in dividend investing which is growing more challenging every year with the increasing velocity of change within the global economy. Resident of Florida but I have a sweet spot for Boston and Buffalo. I live well below my means and invest the difference. Fiscally conservative , father of two beautiful little angels and married to my college sweetheart. We hope to retire one day to Hawaii, if my DGI investing is fruitful.
