About Me

I’m a BI consultant and avid do-it-yourselfer who only reluctantly became interested in the stock market after helplessly watching the value of my 401k plummet during the global financial crisis of 2008.  Not wanting to re-live that experience, I embarked on a multi-year process of trial and error where I lost even MORE money.  Fortunately, these setbacks only increased my resolve.  Eventually, my hard work paid off, allowing me to move to the beautiful Caribbean island of Puerto Rico.

Once it clicked, I realized that this isn’t rocket science.  If I can do it, anyone can do it.  The only prerequisite is to possess the passion and commitment to learn.  If this is you, then DIY Investor is the site for you.  The goal of this blog is to demystify the stock market and accelerate the learning curve of anyone interested in DIY investing so they too can achieve their dreams.

To your freedom and independence.
