My Story

I worked in the corporate world for a number of years upon graduating from college with a double-major in Finance and Economics. Yet I've always had an interest in writing (I covered my beloved Gamecock football team for the college newspaper), so when the opportunity to join The Motley Fool as a writer was presented to me, I jumped right in. I try to learn something new each day and hope you enjoy what I write.

How I Invest

Very carefully.
