    Quit my job out of school 3 years ago doing equity research for hedge funds. Got a little bit lucky on market timing shorting the Industrials & S&P 500 Index when they open 4% down on Chinese currency devaluation news in August 2015.

    Those funds afforded me enough money to move to Texas with whatever I could fit into my Jeep for about 6 months until I could find a job in commercial real estate. Took me about 2 weeks to land a position. In the last 3 years, I went from a temp intern at a large international corporation to the Director of Acquisitions at a small private equity firm with a $500 MM portfolio. The position allows me equity exposure in all new acquisitions.

    Now I am itching to be challenged more and working on a side project to disrupt the current leasing model for commercial real estate. Still evaluating if I am missing something or some how my current hypothesis is flawed, but would love to connect with new people especially if they have prior experience building a technology service platform and raising startup capital.

    Any interest from the Dallas guys to do some BBQ in Centerville?

    @amp0193 It sounds like you know of many FLF'ers up there.

    I know some. There's several I haven't met yet too.

    Is there anything actually in Centerville? I only know what you can see from I-45 and it ain't much.

    I'd be very interested, but always gotta run plans by the wife and family first.


    This intro thread is becoming a TX meetup thread... :)
