About

My career on Wall Street actually started while I was in college and spent a summer interning for Merrill Lynch in the middle of the ‘90s bull market.

I was fascinated with trading, and as a result after college I joined Salomon Brothers’ in the famed mortgage bond trading department. Later, I spent time at Citigroup working with credit derivatives … and then a decade as the head trader at Peahi Capital, a New York-based hedge fund, where my team made a 339% total return in 2008 alone.

It was during these periods that I realized how much I enjoyed being part of a process that saw investors make tens of millions of dollars sometimes on single trades.

Eventually, I needed to walk away from the excesses of Wall Street, as I grew tired of making rich people richer. This lead me to venture investing, where I discovered cryptocurrencies, the perfect blending of early stage investing and trading.

Now I’m excited to bring that strategy to Banyan Hill Publishing as their crypto expert — letting readers in on the massive gains just waiting for those who have the right system in place. Because there’s much more upside ahead.

My Story

As odd as it might sound, my investing success stems from one busy summer day on the Jersey Shore.

That day, everything was moving along as it normally did. The beach was teeming with swimmers, while the surface of the ocean seemed calm.

However, from my perch atop the lifeguard stand, I started noticing an undercurrent brewing. And a group of children were swimming dangerously close.

So, after a few failed attempts to move them from danger via whistle, it was time to act. I quickly called for backup, launched myself off the tower and sprinted toward the water.

And I suddenly realized a normally stressful situation had become, well, almost routine.

See, I grew up on the Jersey Shore, where I spent summer after summer as an ocean lifeguard. At 19, I was appointed captain of the busiest beach in Belmar, New Jersey. And it was common to have upward of 50 rescues on days when the ocean was rough.

That’s why I look at those days as the bedrock of my career. It’s where I truly started learning the tools that would lead to my success in trading — particularly crypto trading.

I know, I know — you probably didn’t expect me to say that. But lifesaving teaches you how to analyze a situation and react quickly. When charging into the surf to help someone, you need to trust your instincts, stay calm and think on your feet — skills that have become invaluable in my trading career.

Of course, I didn’t know I would be using those lessons in the markets at first.

In college, I actually studied psychology and pre-med because I was passionate about becoming a psychiatrist. But between classes, I started trading dot-com stocks from my dorm room. Day after day, I would delve into the market, and got my hands on as much knowledge as I could to help me assess those stocks.

And I quickly found that I loved analyzing and predicting market trends just as much as I loved analyzing human behavior.

It requires a better understanding of oneself — of human psychology — as much as an understanding of the market. After all, markets are comprised of individuals acting in groups. So it all comes down to the same question: Why do we do what we do?

After college, I worked at Salomon Brothers’ in the famed mortgage bond trading department and spent time at Citigroup before spending a decade as the head trader at Peahi Capital, a New York-based hedge fund, where my team made a 339% total return in 2008 alone.

It was during these periods that I realized how much I enjoyed being part of a process that saw investors make tens of millions of dollars — sometimes on single trades.

As word of cryptocurrencies first started to surface, I took notice.

I knew early on that they could become the biggest trading opportunity of all time … which is why I’ve dedicated the last half decade of my career to becoming one of the top cryptocurrency experts out there.

It’s been my sole focus and the reason my analysis is consistently published on Zero Hedge and Investopedia.

But even when I was letting readers in on the vagaries of the crypto market … I never let them in on my personal trading strategy … the one I use to uncover the crypto opportunities before anyone else.

This strategy is precisely why I invested in bitcoin for the first time in 2013. Now I didn’t buy it at the low $14, but I did buy it around that time. And every $1,000 invested around then was worth roughly $1.2 million in early 2018.

I also saw a 627% rally in the crypto Ox in just a few months. I invested in Ark as well, and it jumped 2,320%.

Likewise, I invested in Factom Charts. It’s rallied 2,738%, growing every $1,000 into $27,380.
