Before I became the leading “Cannabis Financial Analyst” in the marijuana industry, I spent decades on the inside of the investment industry as a portfolio manager.

Prior to earning my CFA charter in 1997, I worked in NYC for Kidder, Peabody, & Co. in bonds from 1986 to 1992. Later in 1992, I joined First Boston’s investment management subsidiary before becoming a portfolio manager with Criterion Investment Management in 1994 —co-managing $10 billion in fixed-income investments. In 2000, I made the move to stocks, joining a small firm in Houston as an analyst and portfolio manager. I remained at the firm until 2006, when I left to form my own business, AB Analytical Services—working as a research consultant for several investment advisors.

In 2008, I began offering Invest By Model, a model portfolio service, to individual investors. I met Marketfy in 2013 and created The Analytical Trader, a service focused on providing swing trading ideas. Both of these services delivered strong performance.

After seeing a strong need for more investor transparency among cannabis companies in early 2013, I launched 420 Investor— a service committed to providing real-time, objective information about the top marijuana companies in the market. 420 Investor has evolved into a collaborative due diligence platform, and I am proud to lead our efforts.

In the process of launching the 420 Investor, I became a much-needed ally to marijuana investors, being hailed as a leading authority in the industry. In early 2014, I exited all of my other business in order to focus exclusively on the cannabis sector. I have supported marijuana legalization since 1980, when I became active in the Libertarian Party. I currently sponsor the National Cannabis Industry Association, NORML, Students for Sensible Drug Policy and the Marijuana Policy Project.
