I grew up in Garden City, KS. Shortly after graduating high school I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps Reserves. I always had a deep commitment to serve my country and a profound respect for my grandfathers’ service in World War II.
After completing basic training, infantry training and specialty training I enrolled at Fort Hays State University. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in History but later in my later college years I started reading finance and economics books. This quickly turned into a passion for me. After college I began building my portfolio with success. I have a particular investment interest in Warren Buffett. I own over 50 books just alone on Mr. Buffett. I also make the pilgrimage to hear him speak at his annual shareholder meeting in Omaha every year.
