I was lucky to discover early in life that I was passionate about technology.
I started in Art School at Columbia College in Chicago, and spent the next 7 1/2 years bouncing from school to school, persuing my interests in Electronics, Business and Cosmology.
I then stumbled across an opportunity to join the team that was developing the first all automated stock exchange ever, the NSTS.
I was bright green, and knew nothing about the grand system I was to be exposed to, but I knew it was the coolest thing ever.
And through feast and famine, I've been able to make a living at it.
