After being an active investor on and off for almost 20 years, I left my position as a senior management and information-technology consultant in 2004 and built a career trading equities and options. I began focusing on market-neutral options strategies for generating monthly income in 2006 and currently trade a portfolio comprising long-vol, short-vol, and vol-neutral options spreads. I spent four years as Chief Analyst and Trading Strategist for the Calendar Options newsletter, which was sponsored by Condor Options (www.condoroptions.com). In addition, I publish The Volatility Trader blog and am a Seeking Alpha contributor. I hold a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania, and currently am serving as treasurer and vice president of a small non-profit organization.
