I'm a senior citizen living in NJ, a retired medical doctor, that invests for income. I own many CEF'S - BDC'S - MLP'S and REITS. In the early 90's I was the MD for the NYSE. I also was the Medical Director of a Tech company in the early 1970's that went from 4 to 40 in one year. I am a buy and hold type of investor, I don't trade.
I'm 60 years old and have been in the stock market since 1977. Retired at 58 on my investments and spend 2-3 hrs daily following what I own and what I would like to own. Enjoy painting, fishing, golf and shooting.
I I'm an Individual Investor trying to build a Income portfolio to supplement my income. I want to learn how to protect myself from large draw downs in my account and obtain financial security. I enjoy learning about investing and have benefited through the contribution of others here at Seeking Alpha. I hope to write an article of my own one day. All the best David

Yes, I make wine as an annual family event and am happy to talk about that at length
