I'm an investment analyst and author living in State College, Pennsylvania. My work has appeared in several high profile publications in both print and on the web. I'm an advocate for long term globally oriented investing and believe that exchange traded funds have leveled playing field for Main Street. Following global macro-economic trends, investors now have several avenues to create great long term portfolios. I graduated from The Pennsylvania State University, where I studied Economics and International Business. Aside for helping regular investors develop winning portfolios, my current projects include writing my first book on the global infrastructure boom.
