Applied Mathematician

I have a B.S in Applied Mathematics from Baylor University.However, I served in the military so, I want to break down topics for anyone to understand. I have been investing in stocks since year 2000. However, I did quite well during the 2008 financial crisis and would like to spread knowledge to help people serious about investing and mathematics. Besides Udemy, I independently build software products on the android market.
