Well I was born and raised in the Philadelphia area. I grew up with a single mother. I am her only child. I was lucky to have an intelligent Grandfather in my family. My Grandfather informed me at an early age about investing and how it can secure my financial future. I was obsessed almost immediately. It was mainly because I am a nerd for numbers. I still have a strong passion in investing. It's not all about the money. It's just fun in general to see spectacular long-term performance. (Don't get me wrong. I made plenty of mistakes in the investment world growing up.) I am happy I made mistakes early so I could learn from them.
I graduated from Arizona State University and attended the Sigma Chi fraternity. I held many leadership positions in the fraternity. That experience was a real pleasure.
I am also interested in a wide variety of subjects. For example, I love sports, law, finance, marketing, and many other things. I'm also OBSESSED with analytics and value investing. I have a strong desire to learn more and more because life is a constant learning experience (I just hope my brain will still be functioning if I achieve old age haha).
