I am an Electrical Engineer by training, a Software Engineer by trade, and have a degree for an MBA somewhere in my garage. I have worked for start-ups, fortune five hundred companies, and myself; and chances are if you live in the US, you are using software I developed. I am very passionate about learning and building. Programming is my first language, English my second.
I am currently a stay-at-home dad taking care of my young son. I seriously took up option trading while my son was sleeping in my lap. That gave me plenty of time to read a multitude of books and websites on option trading. When I am not playing peek-a-boo, changing diapers, or taking my daughter swimming, I am learning as much as I can about the option market.
My backtesting tool was a tool I wrote to help me understand and clarify different trades and trade adjustments. It piggy-backs on other code I have developed to aid me in my option trades. And ultimately, I believe it leads me to understand the fundamentals of options better.
