Michael Sherman (Managing Partner & Co-CIO)

Michael formed Schoolcraft Capital in February of 2015.  The idea came from a calling to simplify and get back to the basics of his first love, investing.  Since opening the doors he has brought on a group of sophisticated investors who value his investment strategy and fee structure.

Prior to founding Schoolcraft, Michael was President of a boutique full service wealth management firm in Boulder, CO. 

Michael has 25 years of experience advising clients and successfully directing investment strategy for families.  He has built an investment research team and still individually loves reviewing thousands of investment managers and opportunities with a focus on private equity, venture, hedge funds, real estate, commodities, and distressed debt.

Ted Harris brings with him over 18 years of substantial investment experience as well as extensive experience advising clients.  Prior to joining Schoolcraft, Harris was a shareholder and member of the investment committee at an investment advisory firm in Denver, CO.   Previously, he also worked with the investment teams for The Rockefeller Foundation and The Yale Investments Office.

Ted earned a MBA from Yale University, and also studied international economics at Oxford University.  He sits on the University of Nebraska Foundation's Alternative Asset Subcommittee. 

When Michael and Ted met, it was clear they would be a complimentary team.  Sharing a commitment to clients and common views on investment philosophy, Ted and Michael became Partners in early 2016.
