Vice President/Chief Investment Officer, LICR Fund Inc.

I joined the Ludwig Institute in 1997 and currently serve as the Chief Investment Officer of LICR Fund, Inc.  The Fund’s overall objective is to provide for the core spending needs of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research on a sustainable basis. The Fund’s portfolio primarily consists of high quality, globally diversified investments with long-term orientation in order to insure that the Institute’s needs are met today and in the future.  I remind myself almost every day what a tremendous responsibility I have and what an honor to be able to serve such a great organization in this capacity. I have a MBA from St. John’s University and am a CPA and CFA.
