My Story

Not sure my story is all that important. I practiced tax law and commercial real estate for 45 years and retired at end of 2013. Still active doing volunteer work and mentoring young men.

How I Invest

I follow the old fashioned Warren Buffet model. It's worked for decades, so I'm not changing.
