I am a market enthusiast and part-time trader. I started writing for Seeking Alpha in 2011, and it has been a tremendous opportunity and learning experience. I have been interested in the markets since elementary school, and hope to pursue a career in the investment management industry. I have been active in the markets for several years, and am primarily focused on long/short equities. I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree from Lehigh University, where I double majored in Finance and Accounting, with a minor in History. My major track focused on Investments and Financial Analysis. While at Lehigh, I was the Head Portfolio Manager of the Investment Management Group, a student group that manages three portfolios, one long/short and two long only. I have had two internships, one a summer internship at a large bank, and another helping to manage the Lehigh University Endowment for nearly a year.

Mostly retired 67yo married with 2 grown children who have successful careers. First career was military, followed (after more education courtesy of uncle Sam) by a career in health care. I still do occasional consulting to keep my brain working. My retirement is self funded and invested conservatively. My goal is to decrease my fixed income investments and increase my DGI holdings for a better chance for portfolio survivability.
The approach is buy undervalued stocks & bonds, preferably long term income generating, and hold until the story changes. No options, no forex, no margin, no ETFs, no metals, and short maybe once a year on sure things only!

At an age of 43, I retired early from a successful engineering career to pursue my passion for personal finance and investing. My early retirement was made possible by following the basic principles of living below my means, saving big portion of my income, and investing in high quality dividend paying stocks.
I am now a full-time investor and a blogger. See my blog for my latest ideas on investing and personal finance.
