My Story

My education was originally in liberal arts and creative writing, and I came to finance relatively late. I’m now knee deep in CFA textbooks and trying to learn as much about the financial markets as possible. My goal is to marry my love of writing with my continually developing skills in finance.

How I Invest

I try to invest in good companies with long term growth prospects. So generally that involves company research, reliance on trusted advice, and sometimes just a little pot luck.
