Who am I?

INVESTOR | ENTREPRENEUR | DIGITAL STRATEGIST

Former Victoria’s Secret salesman turned digital strategist. Now having a go at investing. I’ve consulted with multiple Fortune 500 brands on strategies and trends in social media marketing, technologies, and best practices.

I’ve worn many hats in my career – graphic designer, consultant, writer, researcher, marketer, salesman, photographer, and educator. As a result, I have learned to manage multi-disciplinary projects and to navigate complex challenges.

Experience has taught me that if you don’t build your own dream, someone else will hire you to help them build theirs. As a result, I became an investor with the goal of achieving financial prosperity. I still consult, but with this endgame in mind.

In short, I’m an investor who works with brands to optimize their social and digital strategy.

INVESTOR FIRST

As an investor my approach to strategy encompasses value. Based on client needs I ensure that return on investment is achieved. These are objectives such as increased sales, leads, or awareness.

CREATIVE SCIENCE

Creativity requires risk most aren’t willing to take. It means experimenting, breaking the rules, making mistakes, and having fun. My approach is to be the mad scientist in the room. 

PLANNED ACTION

In the battle between planning and action, action always wins. The best plan in the world means nothing if it’s not implemented. My approach is to create strategies that require execution. 

Develop into a lifelong self-learner through voracious reading; cultivate curiosity and strive to become a little wiser every day.
— Charlie Munger

INVESTING

I utilize a diversified value investment strategy, which includes both stocks and real estate. As a value investor I seek investments that are undervalued, which allow me to profit by buying when the price is deflated. This investment paradigm is derived from the ideas on investing by Benjamin Graham, and later made popular by Warren Buffett.

Dishwasher to Assistant Manager in Six Months

Successful investing is about managing risk, not avoiding it.

Think of yourself as an investor seeking “ROI” (return on investment) on every area of your life: The food you eat; the career you pursue; the people you surround yourself with; the beliefs you hold; each have to pay off in the long run.
