I have spent my 25 year career in IT, First designing solutions, then implementing solutions, then selling solutions and now managing the sale of solutions. I have worked for 15 years in the Telco industry. I now work for Oracle selling security solutions to Telcos. I have been investing for over 20 years. I doubled my portfolio between 2007 and 2009. I split my investment portfolio between tech stocks and penny tech stocks and am certainly a high risk investor.
