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.
