I am an avid investor who tries to see some reality behind all the media noise. Past mistakes have tought me not to make investment decision on anything but facts which are sometimes very hard to come by. Bad news and fear sell media so I read all commentary with that thought in mind. Grew up in NYC, Stuyvesant High School, BA Political Science, NYU.
