I am a longtime Fool from the States relocated to London. With decades to go before retirement, I'm focused on AIM-listed small caps and growth shares of all stripes. My favourite companies are those that are looking to shake up stodgy industries with fresh ideas. After living and working in China for several years, I also have a soft spot for companies looking to take advantage of the long term potential to be found selling to a 100 million strong middle class.
