Layperson, average joe, serious more than a hobbyist investor in search of "quality". i find investing/swing trades an enjoyable mental exercise. "Self Taught?" NO FORMAL FINANCIAL EDUCATION, just lots and lots of reading and kicking over rocks to see what's underneath. My style is primarily fundamental/value 90% investment with life time horizon. The other 10% swing trading and/or cash leveraged hedging. Currently managing my brokerage account, a couple custodial, and a few retirement accounts. Picture is of my father and i, we go way back.

Wisdom vs. Information does not imply that I believe I am wise; I humbly seek to distinguish between plentiful information and rare wisdom. I am a reformed lawyer and serial entrepreneur, with a few years of oil and gas industry experience as well. I am a disruption nerd, constanly searching for innovation that will be disruptive. Evolved computing and chips and software that enable "The Cloud" transition are my current focus.
Ecology must mesh with economics to be relevant. Pollution is a natural byproduct of all plant and animal activity; increasing pollution by increasing consumption while-fighting-pollution is the history of the last 30 years. Consumption is worse for the ecology than pollution.
The greatest gift God (mother nature, evolution, The Allspark, whatever one chooses to worship) gave us is free will: fight for it by using it! No one can 'give' you freedom.
