Jim Hawthorne is an ex pilot, retired Program/Project Manager and one time Washington Beltway Bandito. Began trading in the 1990's and have been a full-time cyber-trader in equities and options since retiring in 2000. What began as a hobby has become one of life's passions! Interests include hunting, fishing, photography and travel. Currently reside in the Kansas City, MO area with my wife who is also an active trader. We spend the winters in Puerto Rico. Life may not always be bowl of cherries, but it certainly is a gift!
