About Me

DSC00421 I trade my own Interactive Brokers account for a living.   I’m an ardent amateur classical pianist.  And of course I’m an ardent amateur photographer.

I’ve been happily married to my Kate for 42 years.  I have three grown children, Chip, Cheri, and Jennifer.

I trade full-time from my own home office and I’ve been actively trading my own account for over 17 years.  I’m a price/action short term technical trader.  My broker is Interactive Brokers and I trade using Interactive Brokers Trader Workstation on Microsoft Windows 10. When I’m away from my office I keep up with my trading using Interactive Brokers Mobile app for Android using the Google Pixel 2 XL Smart Phone.

I have a 7′ 5″ Kawai concert grand piano.  I’ve had years of lessons with excellent teachers.  I spend several hours practicing and playing most every day.  I play all 18 of the Mozart sonatas and most of the Beethoven sonatas.  I’m still working on his late sonatas.  They are very challenging.  I also play a good bit of Bach and Schubert.  I play all 8 of the Schubert Impromptus. Currently I’m working on Chopin’s G minor Ballade. Look at my piano page to see my piano.

I’ve recently purchased a Sony RX10 III and it is so good that I decided to sell all my big, bulky, heavy Canon cameras and lenses.  Going forward Kate is using her Sony RX100 III and Sony RX10. I’m using my Sony RX100 III and Sony RX10 III.  My latest RX10 III images are now in my Photo Gallery in their own RX10 III folder.

I’ve been an Adobe Photoshop user for over 20 years and have a subscription for Adobe Lightroom/Photoshop CC. I have a Terabyte of cloud storage on Microsoft OneDrive. All my photos and data are stored on Microsoft OneDrive as well as being duplicated on my own local network.

My website is hosted on godaddy.com and runs on the latest version of WordPress.
