I'm a private, full time trader interested in both long and short ideas. My training and background are in engineering including a decade of consulting engineering practice. I've since switched over to investing/trading which I've done full time for 15+ years and to which I bring a contrarian style. I've also recently become interested in writing and have published editorials at Forbes, PJM, and a few legacy newspapers.
63 year old with an undergraduate degree in Economics.
Began my career as a computer programmer, initially developing accounting systems for small businesses. Progressed to developing financial and investment systems primarily for the insurance industry.
In 1987, started a technology corporation developing investment management systems supporting equity, fixed income and private placement investments. In 2001, the corporation was sold to a Fortune 500 company. As president of the corporation, overseeing finance, developed strong financial skills. Personally wrote all the computer reports and models required by the M&A attorneys and buyers necessary to facilitate the marketing and sale of the business.
In 2006, began my second career in portfolio management, taking both long and short positions.
