I have been an active amateur stock market investor since about 1990. That is when I sold some completed real estate investments and had enough money to become active in the stock market. Before that, I graduated with a BA in Chemistry and Math from UCSB. I subsequently retired at age 55 from a 30-year period as a software developer for a major S and P company. I have a wife and an adult daughter as well as two granddaughters. My spouse and I live in a large condominium unit in San Antonio, TX. I enjoy watching basketball, football and tennis.
