While my interests are varied and often vary, Economics and History have melded themselves together as a persistent theme that has occupied a good bit of my life. I developed an interest in investing early and was afforded opportunities at various times throughout my life to pursue it. Some of these took root and grew into a career as a stock broker starting in late 1982. Currently I am president of Atlas Indicators Investment Advisors, Inc. where we provide a variety of financial services. Look us up at atlasindicators.com for more details. Or check out some of my interviews below.

Seeing the financial services industry change so radically over the decades, and having been able work for several major wire houses and one of the biggest banks as a financial planner, I have picked up many insights, some horror stories, and a general idea about how one's investments should be structured to facilitate this business of life. I speak occasionally about this subject, as well as many others when asked. For a partial list of topics and more details about having me appear as a guest speaker for your group, go to the Contact tab at the top of the page.
