Education
Class of 1993

St. Mary's University, founded in 1852 by Marianist brothers and priests, is the first institution of higher learning in San Antonio and the oldest Catholic university in Texas and the Southwest. Personal attention and powerful academic programs have made St. Mary's, located on 135 acres northwest of downtown San Antonio, a nationally recognized liberal arts institution. With a diverse student population of nearly 4,000 of all faiths and backgrounds, St. Mary's is home to five schools: Humanities and Social Sciences, Bill Greehey School of Business, Science, Engineering and Technology, Graduate, and Law. The University provides a Catholic education experience that evokes academic excellence while integrating liberal studies, professional preparation and ethical commitment. St. Mary's 192 full-time faculty members, 94 percent of whom hold doctoral or terminal degrees in their fields, are committed to student success in and out of the classroom. St. Mary's has approximately 70 undergraduate and graduate majors and offers over 120 degree programs, which include two doctoral and two law programs. The student/faculty ratio of 13-to-1 permits small classes and promotes active learning. The Marianists who came to San Antonio in 1852 responded to the call of their superiors to establish an educational institution to regenerate the people of the city. Through their work and the work of those who followed them, St. Mary's University has maintained its reputation as "a noble institution destined to be a great education center of the Southwest." St. Mary's serves the various communities of San Antonio, the Southwest, the nation and the world through the intellectual, spiritual, moral and professional leadership of its faculty, administration, staff and students.

Career History
Managing Director
1999 - Current

TDAM employs various methods of security analysis. The firm's fixed income investment philosophy is based upon strong and independent credit research. Proprietary research is vital to the firm's investment process and forms the basis for all of their investment decisions. Within the quantitative investment strategies, TDAM use a number of proprietary risk models to evaluate companies and select investments. The Low Volatility Equity strategy relies on proprietary risk models to construct optimized portfolios of stocks which have demonstrated lower long-term volatility. These risk models use statistical methods to capture the relationships between currency and stock return fluctuations. Similarly, the Systematic Alpha strategy relies on proprietary return factor models, which use statistical methods to determine the properties of stocks that have historically been associated with superior performance. Core factors include value (higher earnings and dividend yields), market sentiment (price momentum and earnings revisions), quality (profitability, operating efficiency, distance-to-default), and corporate management (shareholder friendly practices). Each of these strategies invest in a diversified portfolio of equity securities including, but not limited to, common and preferred stocks, securities convertible into common stocks, ETFs, American Depository Receipts, and real estate investment trusts. Each of these strategies will also invest in money market securities and other cash management vehicles.
