Married, living in downtown Chicago and in my mid-30s. I have 10+ years of banking experience, with a current position of Vice President in Financial Performance Management. My wife, currently a physician, is supportive in exploring investment opportunities that make sense for all potential partners. I have a personal interest in exploring investment opportunities where I can provide my experience and money to further business development. I am also open to silent investments given strong business proposals. My passion for investing comes from my father, a former business owner, and my personal fixation on building a financial portfolio beyond my day-to-day obligations at work where I can extend my skills and personality to help build a good business. I’d describe myself as approachable, hands-on, motivated and easy to work with.
