About Benjamin

I completed my Masters in Computational Finance at Carnegie Mellon in December of 2011 (I swear, I'm not as boring as you think), and have spent the past 2 years as a Managing Director of Quantitative Strategies at a portfolio strategy construction boutique. Before my MS in Computational Finance, I was a financial advisor for a large multinational insurance conglomerate for 5 years where I made a harrowing escape to salvage my integrity. Before that I backpacked around Asia for 11 months...see I told you I'm not that boring.

I've been working on a financial technology concept (prototype, business plan, bizdev, etc.) for which I am *very interested* in finding a full-stack co-founder (i.e. has significant front end and back end capabilities), although if I had to choose I'd be looking for back-end Dev-Ops. The ability to think ahead, incorporate scalability, and make me laugh is vital.
