I've been an active investor since purchasing my first shares at age 14. I am passionate about valuation and enjoy building DCF valuation models in my spare time. I am a big fan of Aswath Damodaran, Joel Greenblatt, Warren Buffet, Ken Fisher, David Einhorn, Dan Loeb, and Monish Pabrai. In 2010, I authored a kindle book titled "Regulating High Frequency Trading: An Examination of U.S. Equity Market Structure In Light of the May 6, 2010 Flash Crash." My educational background is in finance, economics, and law. I buy stocks for the long term and love trading options in the short term. I am an attorney and enjoy spending time with my wife and kids.
