I am an an entrepreneur, trader and programmer based in Mainz, Germany. I studied economics, journalism and ethnology at the Jonannes Gutenberg University, Mainz. My experience with financial websites goes back to the late 1990s when I published a German language site (redboerse.de) focusing on emerging technology stocks. To me, work must be enjoyable.

I have traveled through the abyss of Chinese reverse mergers and lived to tell about it. Primarily trade small caps: bio-pharma, commodity related, low float value, and US listed Chinese stocks.
