My GvFC rollerball pen. My grandfather, also a lefty, bought me my first fountain pen when I was 15, understanding the struggle of smudging, and I’ve been a pen enthusiast ever since. I also played a lot of sports growing up and noticed that there aren’t quite as many trophies doled out in the corporate world. After passing L2 of the CFA exam, I treated myself to this pen as something of a “trophy.”


Our brains are wired to behave irrationally. As an investor, it is imperative to recognize blind spots in ourselves as well as others and remain disciplined.


Outside of work, I enjoy listening to audiobooks, playing tennis and golf, following my favorite sports teams, live music, stand-up comedy, and spending time with my family.
