For the past fourteen years I’ve been a trader and upper level manager both on Wall Street and at my home near Miami. I assisted in the writing of several books on trading and have taught numerous seminars on trading equities. I have traveled extensively as a trouble shooter to improve the efficiency of the firms for whom I worked. After many successful years in the industry, I desired closure with regards to academics, and returned to school where I completed my MBA degree.
My career in financial services allowed me to pursue my enjoyment of adventure travel whilst quenching my thirst for knowledge. I have a profound love and respect for the great outdoors and take advantage of every opportunity to see more of this world. From the high slopes of Mt. Everest to the depths of the ocean as a dive master in the Florida Keys, I’ve been fortunate to experience Mother Nature up close and personal. A new and recent interest is flyfishing in the mountain states.
I’m very happy that my personal and professional life experiences, combined with academic accomplishments, have put me in a situation of being able to be more selective in future career choices. My knowledge and attitude has been shaped by so many positive forces, for which I am truly grateful. It is this life experience that has positioned me for leadership roles and will allow me to adapt to a variety of settings.
I’m often accused of thinking a bit “outside the box”. OK, way outside the box! That’s why I enjoy life so much and have accomplished what I’ve been able to do. I plan on continuing my life-long desire to learn and grow and hope that I might be able to teach and pass on my unique perspective to others. Good luck to all!
