I am a passionate investor who loves managing a concentrated portfolio of high conviction investments in both public and private companies. My past professional and investing experiences have led me to my distinct approach and successful career in family office investing. My experience in film making and interest in history and culture make me an interesting person to grab a coffee with.
I'd like to connect on LinkedIn with people who love investing, who want to share one or two high conviction ideas, and/or expand their network of interesting people in Philadelphia and New York.
