Unintentional Economist & Cash Flow Engineer @MyGreenCapital

With over 20 years of global experience and connections, as an executive in a Fortune 50 technology company, I have worked to make many innovative ideas become real and turned them into successful global businesses. This experience has given me a practical view of economics & finance from a real world perspective. Living and dying by my decisions gives me a unique viewpoint on the hidden forces of the money machine that drives the real world.

After living in 3 countries and experiencing different financial systems, I found myself questioning things that a lot of people took for granted. My uncle, who was an international currency trader in London, reinforced this by sharing stories of how a few individuals where able to change the forces of governments-take them on and win. In the process I became an unintentional economist. Thus, I have an alternative view of financial forces and headwinds that affect people’s lives such as the power of debt for good and bad, the true risks associated with different types of investing, and how different people hack the system. To do well today most people need to overcome the financial headwinds they are burdened with. By applying this knowledge it has allowed me to gain time back in my life to spend it on things that create meaning not just the daily grind of trading time for money. I have a great desire to share what I have learned along the way, mentoring others and helping them find their path and devising creative ways to capitalize on various market and economic events. Nowadays, having fun, presenting at conferences on economics and other financial topics, and building a coalition of the willing to take on the world, is my passion; I hope you can join me on this journey.
