I am a retired Canadian Naval Officer and Realtor living with my wife, Sandy, in Arizona where I spend much of my time playing tennis.I am a long time market observer and investor. My interests are travel,history and psychology in which I hold an undergraduate degree.I have learned that certainty is a disease.
I have been investing in individual stocks and ETFs for a bit over 4 years. I became interested in the topic just a few short weeks before the big crash so its been quite an experience. Prior to that I had invested in low cost index funds of various types. My education consists of a BS and MS in chemical engineering so my stock interests tend to gravitate toward this area. I have been employed at one of the Department of Energy National Laboratories for most of my career.
