I graduated from the University of Florida in 2017 and worked in operations management for Amazon before deciding I really like to write about finance and business. After spending two years in the private equity world, I switched gears to the public markets to cover tech and consumer goods stocks with the Fool. I'm based out of sunny South Florida, and when I'm not writing you can find me running my small business, cooking, listening to music, or watching Gordon Ramsay yell at people on TV.
