I currently work full time in corporate finance as a financial consultant. In my spare time I exercise, read and invest. My readings are almost always related to finance, economics and investments. I spent 5 years in the US Navy (3 yrs aboard the prestigious USS Constellation aircraft carrier) as an electronics technician. In addition, I have an undergraduate degree in finance, an MBA, and I am a CFA Level 3 candidate, none of which helped me become a better investor or trader. I also manage my own portfolio, as well as portfolios for friends and family members for the past few yrs, having done particularly well.
