I am a retired University lecturer in the UK. My education was primarily in Physics and I taught electronics for some 40 years - a time of great change and innovation. Much of my work in that time was in design and engineering solutions for both my own Physics department and the Electronics department of Salford University, Manchester, UK.
Interests, outside of making the best of my (very) hard earned cash, are my family (wife Nitaya and son Matthew), my friends, quality education for all, not just the elite or those in the developed world, and doing what I can to help all life on this planet. I'm not an out-and-out "greenie" but I know good tech when I see it!

How may I help you?
I invest by listening to consumer demands for many products, looking to see where early adopters are trending towards, along with capitalizing on people’s own foolish buying habits when buying stocks.

I'm an Engineer from New Zealand, recently moved back to the homeland after 4 years of living in Switzerland. I've a little under a decade of experience in product development in the energy industry; most of it relating to grid interactive power electronics applied to a range of applications including electric vehicle fast charging and grid battery energy storage; both with engineering multinational ABB. More recently I led the engineering activities through to V1.0 product launch at Ampard, an energy storage startup. Now I split my time between consulting work and my own projects, the foremost of which is www.tradifex.com, a trade optimization framework (currently under development).
I've been dabbling in stocks from time to time for the last ten years - early efforts led to burnt fingers, leading to a more cautious approach and positive results in recent years. I greatly admire and respect Warren Buffet and agree with his philosophy that you should buy companies you understand and believe in... but at the same time I'm not blind to the impact of sentiment. Between doing my homework and applying a few analytical tools I've been coding in my spare time I try to make out ok.
I am an engineer and long time technical consultant specializing in control and instrumentation systems for medical, industrial, vehicle and aerospace companies.
