Class Experience

US Grade 6 - 8
I was an equity trader at Trillium Trading, LLC for 17 years. I was the Trader of the Year (trader with the highest annual PnL) eight times in a firm of over 100 traders. I am currently a successful options trader. I understand risk/reward deeply. I have spent well over 30,000 hours weighing risk/reward when making financial transactions, and can transfer my understanding to other circumstances. 

I also have a Master's degree in Behavioral and Decision Sciences from the University of Pennsylvania, which provided me with additional knowledge on the topic of judgment and decision-making.
