carefully investing but more often investigating; have had 6 decades of remembered losses in both public markets and private placements. Still a board member of a nonprofit and still holding shares in companies seeded long ago but not yet having reached their investor exits. Trying to be thoughtful about investments and enjoying the experience. Becoming less current all the time, likely finding me to be a doddering old fuddy duddy for anyone reading what I post here.

Started investing in 2007 by means of mutual funds. It was 2014 when I finally arrived to the conclusion that there must be a better way of investing than using mutual funds, so I started buying individual stocks. It did not help at all that oil crashed almost immediately after I restructured my portfolio. I am still recuperating since then, and try to stay optimistic. In the meantime I learned a lot about the stock market and investing (mainly due to SA), and hope for my portfolio to show some good gains sometime down the road.
According to my linear time memory, I was born in Manila, Philippines, and was raised on a farm forty miles south of Manila. My ancestors were Chinese, Filipino and Spanish. I went to the University of the Philippines and obtained a degree in Chemical Engineering, and then I went to Hawaii to attend graduate school. I obtained a degree in Biochemistry at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and did my postdoctorate at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California. I taught Biochemistry and General Chemistry classes for several years and then left the academia altogether.
In the recent past, I have dealt primarily with investments , funding proposals, coaching and writing.

Now, I am simply grateful for every breath.
My favorite quote: " You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet." Franz Kafka
And this I always have to remind myself "None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe "
