My Story

Houston native and resident. Always been fascinated by entrepreneurship and small business. Started investing at the age of 13 with money saved from summer jobs and mentorship from my father. Fell in love with writing and reading from an early age through the creativity and imagination of my mother. I try to keep an open mind so that I can learn from those smarter than me.

How I Invest

Short cash supported puts as a means of entering into a position, then covered calls over the long term.
