I guess I’ll start with college. I graduated from Stanford University with a BSEE in 1990. From there I went to work as an information systems consultant with a (then) Big 6 firm. I worked in IS for the next nine years, mainly building Windows-based client/server applications using PowerBuilder and Oracle. During that period, the mid 90’s, I became interested in the stock market. My interest really intensified in the late 90’s for a couple of reasons. Of course the technology boom has a lot to do with it, but where I was working at the time also contributed greatly. In 1997 I was on a project for an energy trading firm, not Enron but one of their competitors. Being in that environment really got me thinking about trading as a profession. So I made the leap in 1999 after my last project ended. I decided it was “now or never” for me to try my hand at trading for a living.
