I work as a professional options trader working for private clients. We use a short premium selling strategy selling Volatility.

I've been investigating what makes the world tick for my entire life. Money and philosophy are my two greatest passions. I've helped teach people around the world how to be successful in trading options and to take accountability with their life. I'm an avid reader of the classics, such as Plato, Aristotle, Nietzche and other major philosophers who have influenced modern though.
