An individual investor with over 40 years of experience. Wall Street has always reflected both the pulse and conscience of America; good and bad. I have survived, and sometimes even prospered, during my journey of being a trader and investor. I would consider myself a mildly active trader/investor.
I am still active in the business world doing what still makes me happy; building and developing businesses. They can be either start-ups or turn-around ventures.
