I am a retired foreign service officer now living in Europe. I have been a self-directed investor for more than 30 years, part time, and I am now managing my portfolio full time. My major focus is buying into world market growth through both non-US and US stocks that benefit from such growth. This includes U.S. large cap as well as small cap stocks with good export potential.
Retired V.P. of engineered Plumbing and HVAC commercial sales. I am now retired from 40 years as a "sales engineer," however, pursue investing with even more passion since I have all that extra free time!
