Life has been all over the map for myself. Raised as a city boy who migrated to the country at 13 - life has been a set of contradictions and extremes. You could say I'm rather malleable as a result.
As a self taught trader who turned professional, I began blogging before blogging was a term. Writing about trading was a method to force me to trade better since the need to explain yourself creates a sort of constant self introspection. The result was beneficial for myself and agreeable with the readers as well.
So, writing started as a by-product of my desire to get better at the art of trading and has morphed into a life of it's own.
