My name is Brendan and I'm glad you are interested in taking my course!


I currently work in the finance industry. I have experience trading equities and currencies and I am passionate about teaching and sharing my knowledge with others. With regards to the currency markets, I enjoy tracking global themes and determining how those can be expressed via currency trades. 


Some of my hobbies include running, playing guitar, jazz, skiing, and reading. I grew up in Los Angeles, California and currently live in New York City. (But I hope to move back to California soon because it's too cold on the East coast!)
