I have used my expertise in Microsoft Excel to develop financial models of public and private companies for use by investors and executive management teams. I am also an expert in Capital IQ, FactSet, Bloomberg and similar financial data programs. I have working experience with VBA (which I use to automate my models), MS Access and Oracle database software. A few examples of my financial modeling work include: 1) a budget forecast model that was relied upon an an oil refining company for several years; 2) a cash burn rate analysis for stakeholders in a major iconic food manufacturing company; 3) the development of a strategy and budget model to forecast the ROI of an online marketing strategy of an eCommerce start-up; 4) the creation of a budget forecast for use in a pitch by a small music store in New York City seeking capital for expansion -- among many other projects. I am a financial analyst with equity research and private equity experience. As an equities analyst on the sell side I covered the steel and telecom services industries; as a buy side analyst I worked as a generalist, recommending successful stock ideas to portfolio managers in nearly every industry. Recently, I have started working with start-ups and more established companies, developing budget forecast models, market research and associated business strategies. In my work with stock picking and budget forecasting, I emphasize a focus on ROIC -- return on invested capital. As a stock analyst I tend to favor ideas that demonstrate growth-at-a-reasonable price. A model portfolio and examples of my deeper research are available at the link below. I continue to run an LLC engaged in equity research, market research, portfolio management and financial modeling services. My work included detailed scenario analysis of internally-used budget forecasts and cash burn rates for key stakeholders in large, privately held companies.

Competency is my goal, perfectionism is my nature, and experimentation is my freedom. From my entrepreneurial spirit and my education at Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration, I have gained a thorough understanding of business, hospitality, and restaurant management, design, and operations. I'm especially proficient in communications, presentations, financial modeling, written research and reporting, menu design and development, customer relations and retention, business plan generation, and administrative support. My continuous progression relies upon balancing my logical and analytical expertise with my creativity. Wordsmithing is my most developed creative skill. I'm passionate for written word and its influence on society; therefore, if I deem a message worthy of expression, I aim to articulate it well. No one is without flaw or immune to mistakes, but in everything I do, I strive to contribute my best. Hire me and feel confident that all of your freelancing needs will exceed your expectations.
