I am a freelance writer, business and technology enthusiast, and occasional investor.
In my professional career, I have founded a digital entertainment firm, and worked at several blue chip IT and technology companies as a Product Manager and Team Leader. I have been active in the markets for several years, and am primarily focused on long/short stocks and options.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts with Honours degree in Business Administration from Kingston University in London, United Kingdom.
