I am a passionate individual investor, based in Vienna, Austria, who likes to invest mainly in US-based growth companies. I have been investing my money and my family's money since 2011, but am interested in the stock market much longer. My first memory of investing goes back to my elementary school days, when my grand uncle, who was a very successful businessman and investor himself, told me stories about the "pork cycle". Ever since, I had a keen interest in business and investing, which led me to study at the Vienna University of Economics and Business, where I did my law degree (Master of Law). I am currently working in the tax advisory business. I have always enjoyed studying balance sheets and financial statements, trying to analyze a company's performance and making projections about the future. I am looking forward to sharing my investment ideas and being challenged by fellow investors.
