What got you into finance?

I was introduced to Warren Buffett’s ‘value-oriented’ investment philosophy in Accounting 101 my junior year of college, I was quickly and forever bitten by the investment bug.

What has surprised you about your career path?

I grew up in Maine, and my long-time goal was to settle down here…but after a job or two in New York City. I was incredibly fortunate to find a dream situation in HM Payson only two years out of college.
