I would like to thank Seeking Alpha's editorial staff for giving me a start in this profession. In particular I would like to thank George Moriarty and Eli Hoffman.
I will contribute still to Seeking Alpha from time to time as the opportunity presents itself.

Individual investor and trader invest and trade for myself and family members. Some stocks I hold long (trying to ignore noise), others short trades long or short, try to evaluate each for it's best potential. Have only been full-time 5 yrs...still such a tremendous amount to learn!! My father has been investing for 60 years and is (trying !!) to teach me as much as he can. If you were to ask me who i admire most in the world--it is my father!
I have so much to learn--and welcome any and all the help you can give me!!
I like tech stocks, high div stocks, MLPs, ETFs, energy stocks, foreign stocks (china, india, brazil esp), mining, but will look at anything that looks profitable....am attracted to high growth and small caps, (when appropriate), am intimidated by healthcare stocks, biotechs...so much can go wrong and i don't know enough about them..
Ok, sorry to ramble on.....
I am an active option and etf trader. I do have a real day job which pays me decently, but I enjoy playing the markets.
I normally trade options which are 3 to 6 months in maturities and use strategies such as synthetic long and synthetic shorts.
Momentum Trader/Technical Trader. Move fast when an opportunity arises, cut losers fast to protect from losses, keep risk low, play the odds when in your favor, don't feel obligated to buy as that will ruin your mindset. Plenty of opportunities out there, don't let yourself feel rushed.
Business Owner/Entrepreneur first, Trader second, author third. This business limits my ability to trade, so not as as many articles and updates as some of you were used to in previous years.
