Amateur investor, 34 years old, work in the technology industry (in marketing). About 2 years ago, my wife and I paid off our mortgage, which gave us a nice increase in our monthly cash flow. With more money to invest every month, I quickly realized that I wanted to learn more about investing. I love reading and interacting on SA, because it's a chance to learn from more experienced investors, with the added bonus that many of them (unlike me) do this stuff for a living.
