I am a private trader specializing in the global futures markets. Spec-vesting is a passion that I pursue after-hours all through my 30+ year business and consulting career in resource exploration. Now it is my full-time job. In trading I look for emerging global economic themes or megatrends, then manage trades and risk using a computerized trend-following approach of my own design. I hold degrees in geology (BA) and engineering geoscience (MS) from the University of California at Berkeley and in business administration (MBA) from Golden Gate University in San Francisco.
