I am a graduate of Michigan State University with a B.S. in Social Science and a Master's Degree in Economics. I spent a few years as an economist before going on to become an options market maker on the Chicago Board Options Exchange for nearly 20 years and another 10 as an investor and risk manager. I have also had my own RIA and managed money for clients for several years. From 2008 to 2019 I was a mentor for people learning how to use and trade options. I very much enjoy working with students and helping them learn concepts in finance. Many of my former students have become friends and work associates.
