Off the clock

Taking my kids to visit historical sites such as Mount Vernon and Plymouth Colony; playing golf on at least five Maine golf courses each year that I’ve never played with the eventual goal of playing every golf course in Maine

What about market research/portfolio planning/customer relations, etc. most excites you?

Conducting research to uncover how businesses create value for shareholders and society. I’m excited by uncovering what drives value creation in the various businesses we own for our clients.

What’s your best day of work like?

My ideal day at work is uncovering a new investment idea that is misunderstood by the market with an investment thesis that I can clearly communicate to any client in less than 30 seconds.
