I began my career in the Securities industry working as a runner on the floor of the New York Stock

Exchange while I attended Pace University. I then started working for Salomon Brothers in their

Government Bond Trading arena. After graduating from Pace University with a degree in Accounting, I

transferred to Chicago and became a member of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange utilizing my

experience to execute trades and manage risk for institutional clients as a broker for Salomon Brothers

on the trading floor. I then embarked to trade for my own account in the stock indices pits as a local

before moving off the floor to aid and assist individual clients in their trading endeavors. I now work at

Walsh Trading holding a series 3 broker’s license whose duties include being the firm’s Chief Market

technician.

I understand that every client's needs are different, and I pride myself in tailoring my service to each

client's unique circumstances and needs. Individual client experience, risk tolerance, and capital all play

a role in how I approach the markets. I am involved in all markets using technical analysis to find

opportunities. My approach is driven by the principles of capital preservation.

My trading philosophy is that if you can recognize and manage the risk, you have a better chance to be

successful in trading. I advise clients to always use stops as money management in my opinion is the

most important ingredient in trading commodities.
