Extensive and successful career in financial markets and derivatives as an equity options and index options market maker on the trading floor of the ISE, CBOE and AMEX exchanges for global trading firms.

Experience with volatility arbitrage, modeling, proprietary trading, and sales trading. Managed risk for my own book of business as well as generated trade ideas and acted on trading opportunities as they arose. Undertook derivatives trading primarily with volatility and dispersion (correlation) strategies, in single stocks and listed indices.

I am interested in extending my work to more in-depth financial analysis, economic modeling & forecasting, data analytics & modeling, and the economics, sociology and politics of money.

I have conducted academic research into bitcoin and cryptocurrencies as well as into retirement planning and inequality. In my research I have developed cryptocurrency pricing and valuation models and have examined implied arbitrage opportunities. These models have successfully been tested on cryptocurrency trading platforms. I am also interested in Bitcoin 2.0 applications and novel uses for the blockchain.
