// SecondaryThoughts is a newsletter at the intersection of the public and private markets. My intent is to shed light on how these markets are evolving and what they might look like in the future. Through original research and analysis, along with curation of news and articles, I hope to find value where others might not be looking.

// About me: I was a volatility trader focused on equity derivatives in Chicago for 12+ years. Post financial crisis I saw investors start to migrate toward the private markets so I decided to shift my attention to analyzing the early-stage ecosystem.

As Kurt Vonnegut wrote, “you are whatever you pretend to be.” Right now I’m pretending to be a writer.
