I was interviewed by P.J. Pahygiannis from GuruFocus.
1. How and why did you get started investing? What is your background?
I was always interested in finance and investing. I studied finance in college. However, I was not able to get a job in investing right after graduating, so instead I went into commercial real estate. When the markets were collapsing in 2008/2009, I quit my job and started Classic Value Investors because I saw incredible deals.
2. Describe your investing strategy.
Obviously, I am a value investor but I will look at any anything with value. This includes industries that other value investors would never touch because they are terrible businesses. I don’t care. If I see a lot of value, I will go there.
