David Seri: The Man and the Myth Behind Seriology
Seri was born behind the Iron Curtain in Budapest, Hungary in 1977. He first tasted freedom when his family immigrated to the United States at the end of 1986. Seri grew up in Boston, attended Villanova University outside of Philadelphia, pursued a graduate degree in economics at the Corvinus University of Budapest, and received an MBA from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
His thrilling corporate work experience includes mutual fund operations, SEC research, fixed-income valuation, product pricing strategy, and pharmaceutical contract management. After a dozen years of corporate servitude in Philadelphia, Washington D.C., and Los Angeles, Seri decided to go on an indefinite sabbatical in Nashville, Tennessee far from the office grind and the chaotic coastal cities of America.
When he is not mourning the decline of Western Christian civilization, Seri spends his time studying history, reading great literature, working on his tennis game, following his favorite soccer club―Ferencváros, sampling new beers, mixing Old Fashioneds, planning his next Southern road trip, and searching for the future Mrs. Seri.
Seri would like to thank his family and friends for encouraging him to follow through on developing Seriology. The concept grew out of the limited circulation of his personal journal from a past disappointing job, which documented Seri’s corporate misadventures and travails. Lastly, a special thanks to J.B., the friend from business school who―in a moment of brilliance―suggested the name for the website.
