I have been a private investor for over forty years. I am a retired physician. My training was in general internal medicine and in hematology. I have seen many ideas come and go in the area of healthcare and medical practice. My political orientation is centrist, and I consider myself to be a pragmatist. Over the years my major area of stock investment has been in the pharmaceutical industry and in biotechnology. I am also interested in energy and natural resources. I am married, the father of two adults, and I have four grandchildren. They are all wonderful and above average. I have been very active in outdoor activities in Colorado. Now, however, I am getting "long of tooth" and I am slowing down a bit.
