I'm a retired socially and politically active person. I represented unions in contract negotiations and daily work related organizational issues both in the healthcare industry for 13 years and in the warehouse and manufacturing industries for 23 years prior to that. My educational background is in macro economics and social movements. My wife has been the Chief Operating Officer of a large regional insurance brokerage for over 2 decades. I have actively managed each of the equity/investment accounts for my wife and 2 children as well as my own portfolio.
