The Value I Bring...
“I have a passion for learning and understanding what makes things tick. In addition, I believe my experience in the US Navy has helped me to stay disciplined in my approach, while also managing and accessing relevant risks — all elements which help me better evaluate the management teams of the companies I follow today.”
