Pittsburgh is my base of operations. While I like to concentrate my investing efforts in companies that are contributing to the bioeconomy -- industrial biotech, biotech crops, biopharmaceuticals -- I'm open to any growth opportunity that emerges. I take a rigorous approach to research and logic to find the relatively few great companies worth owning for the long haul, although I'll take smaller positions with more speculative companies from time to time. Take a walk over to SynBioBeta if you're interested in learning more about the synthetic biology industry and the game-changing startups disrupting the status quo.
