Preparing for retirement, married; one child, not nested. Well-educated; BS and MS from well-known schools, ironically in political science and public management. Former marine.
Senior planner (20+ years) at a regional planning agency. Latest role is forecasting the financial condition and physical condition of southwestern Pennsylvania roads and bridges, and re-developing a Regional ITS Architecture. SA is a valuable macro tool - thanks for the value-added planning assistance. Spouse is a pastor at a small church outside Pittsburgh, and I'm a volunteer preacher at the Allegheny County Jail (also 20+ years).
Home owner; only debt is elective. 401K, 403b, IRAs, professionally managed. Transitioning to a thoughtful self-managed portfolio upon retirement. Getting SA education in prospective financial strategies and risks, and feeling like a DGI-er (thank you, Sensei Regarded).
I've been lurking in the SA background since Jan15, first comment Aug15. I find the community to be a fun and intriguing learning environment, for me probably with a significant risk of addiction. On the downside - if you've seen pictures of SWPA roads and bridges, too many in bad condition - in some ways the SA environment too much resembles the challenges in my workplace.
Investing actively in the stock market since 1991 and becoming a "Nokia-millionaire" during the 1990's as they call us here in my home country Finland.
