“I started out as a Computer Operator in the late nineties. I moved to London in 2006 and worked for the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE Euronext). It was here where my eyes opened to the world of investing. Stocks and shares weren’t my things at the time but I was interested in property investing, especially after reading ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’.
I purchased half a dozen property investments in England over a 4 year period. I also helped a number of colleagues do the same using the same simple strategy I used. I have a passion for property and I love helping people fulfill their dreams when it comes to buying property as an owner occupier or as an investor”
