I graduated from the University of San Francisco with a BA in Experimental Psychology. I've been a long time investor. My first speculations weren't in equities but in gold and silver in 1979. My analyses focus on joining investment opportunities to geopolitical realities and attempting to discern when critical turning points are imminent in each.
Private sector options day trader. Investments in real property including real estate, gold/silver, and unique rare historic items. Philanthropist and avid investor of my health. Working toward a degree in life. The MBA and Series 7 were not cutting it.
Retired from education after 28 years teaching mathematics in grades 7-12. Bought first stock (MO) in 1964 and no, I no longer own it but which I had all these years.Have long-term in IRA SBUX, ABT, BAX, and a few others.Use non-IRA for trading.
Options obviously appeal to me , but I lean heavily toward selling them which has served me well the last 2 years.

I live in Jerusalem with my wife and a bunch of exceptional kids. Most days, you'll find me making the commute from Jerusalem to Raanana. Occasionally I get to work from my home-office, from where I keep an eye on the beautiful Judean Hills.
