Who am I?

What am I doing?

About Me
"The guy that doesn't matter."
That's how I felt for most of my life. Maybe you can relate. I had a major disfunction. I could not speak when I wanted to, and only could when I didn't. I had a bad social stutter. It prevented me from having any kind of a "life" for a long time. Until something inside of me broke.
 
It was as if something inside of me was fighting the way I was living my life, like I was doing something terribly wrong. Eventually, I started to pay attention and one decision and a time, slowly but surely, things started to change.  My stutter endured all however until I finally decided to kick it in the teeth and confront the extreme fear I felt each and every day before stepping outside.

1985

Poland (<4 yrs old)

My family flees our home country to become refugees in a foreign land. In order to escape, my parents had to separate for 2.5 years. We had no contact with my dad except for a few phone calls, and things in the mail here and there. Meanwhile, he was working as hard as he could to bring us to the U.S. as soon as possible. 

1988

Family (~7 yrs old)

In December of 1988, we reunite with my dad, after more than two years apart, separated by an ocean, trying to live in a land where we did not know the language.

2004

School (adolescance)

After graduating high school in 2000, I went on to undergraduate studies at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. I majored in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Theoretical Physics and later on, Biology. I was interested in designing surgical implants for patients needing joint replacements. 

2011

Engineer
 
In the summer of '04 I began my engineering career. Not long into it I realized that I may have made a grave mistake. Seven years later I "retired" from engineering and only consult from time to time.

2010

Trader
 
Before I "retired" from full time engineering, I began working in the financial industry. First in insurance, then investments, and eventually trading options and futures contracts. Today, I focus mostly on trading options and currencies. Look for a trading blog coming soon.

2013

Ballroom Dancer
 
Yes it's true. Go ahead and laugh if you must, however dancing taught me more about myself than even I could've hoped. Learning about people is a fascinating hobby, any way you slice it. I was an instructor for about two years and I hope the relationships built there will last a lifetime.

2016-

Author/Advisor
 
I never set out to write a book, it kind of just happened. As a result, I've gathered so much momentum that there's no turning back. My purpose is clear. I am a translator. I am supposed to bring people together. There's nothing better than helping someone help themselves. Here's to your better tomorrow.
