I have been in the markets since 1986. I am a left handed-over educated-middle child-military brat. I was born in Italy and I've lived in Alabama, France, Spain and California. I have the following degrees: a BS in Biochemistry, a BS in computer science, a minor in business, and a Ph.D. in pharmacy. I speak Spanish poorly, can read a balance sheet, change a timing belt, and can deal with manipulative people. I like to read Investor's Business Daily when I am on vacation. I spend my spare time growing the perfect tomato, and drawing cartoons for my website, FishGoneBad.com (http://www.fishgonebad.com/).
