Specializes in Value Investing, Growth-At-a-Reasonable-Price (GARP), Dividend Investing and Market-Neutral/Long-Short Strategies. My methodologies tend to lean towards Quantitative Value coupled with good Fundamental Analysis along with some basic Technical Analysis (Quantitative Portfolio Management). I am a numbers guy who looks to see if the investment story (narrative) is possible, plausible and probable. It is looking at the forest from the trees mentality. There are strengths and weaknesses in either being: 1) a very detailed person and 2) a "Big Picture" guy. I may miss some details along the way. However, this helps me look at the "Big Picture" in broad brush strokes and helps me determine the long-run economics of a company from a high level. I am an experienced professional with expertise in financial statement analysis, value investing, and financial modeling. Past employment with the government (Internal Revenue Service), banking, commercial real estate, insurance, education, and accounting service sectors. In addition, I am also CFA® charterholder and a CPA with individual and corporate tax compliance experience.
