I joined Broadfield Capital Management LLC in 2019.  My focus is finding high income, low volatility investment opportunities that meet our disciplined criteria. We achieve this through efficient interaction with broker dealers, alternative trading systems, and other market participants.

What I did before? I helped build one of the first automated municipal bond market making strategies as the Head Trader at Headlands Tech Global Markets. 

And before that? As a part of Global Electronic Trading at RBC Capital Markets, I helped investors navigate the complexities of equity market structure while optimizing the bank’s capital usage.

I earned my BA in Economics from Harvard University, where I was a starting outfielder on the baseball team and competed against several current MLB All-Stars.

I grew up playing team sports, where I learned that successful outcomes depend on a combination of individual performance, team cooperation, and adaptability to dynamic circumstances.  

My first job was? At a baseball training facility outside Chicago. I spent time around the game I loved while answering phones, cleaning batting cages, and restocking bathrooms.

How do I fill my free-time? Reading history, going to movies, and watching the Chicago Cubs. My ideal Saturday afternoon is taking in a game at the Friendly Confines.
