Civil engineer using nurtured logical predictive ability to increase my retirement accounts and thereby recover somewhat from the one two punch of a divorce (in 2007 I borrowed to settle and keep real estate) and real estate downturn (2008 my real estate went underwater). Started investing in stocks in mid-2013 with $100k in a Roth IRA. Dropped to $69k, up to $500k, down to $105k, up to $670k, down to $315k, up to $850k. Goal is $4m by end of 2015. I am more than half way there having achieved an 8.5 bagger (end of 2015), I only need another 5 bagger to exceed my goal. TAX FREE.

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.

I invest when I see opportunities present themselves. Mostly long, some short term trading. I can go a month with no trades and then do 40 in a week. Plain vanilla calls and puts in options and LEAPS.
