I’ve been through some interesting times. That trend seems to be continuing.
1999 – Moved to San Francisco and worked for a software company through the bursting of the .com bubble (commute times got significantly better).
2000 – Sold some stock and paid off my first car (only good trade I made that year – still have the car!).
2001 – September 9th – Flew to Australia to work for an extended period of time (airport security was much stricter on the way home).
2005 – Bought my first house (Federal Hill area of Baltimore).
2006 – Sold my first house (whew!).
2007 – Moved over the Leverage Finance team from Corporate Investment Banking (had a front row seat to a credit market meltdown).
2008 – Moved over to team managing some institutional CLO assets (at least we had work to do until our employer collapsed).
2010 – Joined a private equity backed business (figured it would be a two year stint).
2017 – Sold private equity backed business.
2018 – Joined SaaS based software company (I just follow bubbles around).
2020 – Global pandemic…?
