My formal educational interests were fairly wide beginning with two years of liberal arts studies, then a BSc (honors) in Computer Science and, after a few years of work in the tech industry, an MA in Cultural Anthropology and, after that, a selection of investment related courses. I first became interested in investment while on a joint venture between then Apple Computer, Inc. and the University of Manitoba. An Apple executive I was working for commented on how much Apple ”shares” had jumped that morning due to some product announcement. I got thinking about share ownership. This new interest in Apple as a business naturally expanded to other companies in the technology sector. Beginning in 1991 with the tech sector, I became an active investor for my own household, family and some close business associates. My investment specific training began with the Canadian Securities Course (completed in 1995) and continued to include financial planning and various accounting and investment courses. I continue to invest private capital in a number sectors in addition to technology including energy, financial, real estate and bonds.
