I'm an Engineer from New Zealand, recently moved back to the homeland after 4 years of living in Switzerland. I've a little under a decade of experience in product development in the energy industry; most of it relating to grid interactive power electronics applied to a range of applications including electric vehicle fast charging and grid battery energy storage; both with engineering multinational ABB. More recently I led the engineering activities through to V1.0 product launch at Ampard, an energy storage startup. Now I split my time between consulting work and my own projects, the foremost of which is www.tradifex.com, a trade optimization framework (currently under development).
I've been dabbling in stocks from time to time for the last ten years - early efforts led to burnt fingers, leading to a more cautious approach and positive results in recent years. I greatly admire and respect Warren Buffet and agree with his philosophy that you should buy companies you understand and believe in... but at the same time I'm not blind to the impact of sentiment. Between doing my homework and applying a few analytical tools I've been coding in my spare time I try to make out ok.
