32-year-old long-term investor, business owner, and hospitality development professional from Orange County, California. I am primarily focused on analyzing high-quality businesses that are simple, predictable, and free cash flow generative with strong economic moats for paying increasing dividends over the long term for continual reinvestment. The goal is to analyze, identify, and have a level of competence and confidence in the underlying business and analyze equities as you would a whole business, of which we have the opportunity to own a portion. My strategies are less focused on hitting “home runs”, and rather consistently hitting “singles” and “doubles” while allowing compounding to do the heavy lifting over time. My academic background is in political science, art history, and real estate from the University of California, Irvine.
