My primary career was high technology, computers, and semiconductors. Many of the CEOs in Silicon Valley have been my clients at some time during their careers. I waited to buy my first computer until "critical mass" arrived with the introduction of the IBM PC-AT in 1984... the price of my first machine was $6000, a far cry from where we are today in price and capabilities. I got involved with the internet in the 90s with online investing, took an interest in technical analysis and daytrading. I'm an active trader and continue in my consulting practice in high technology, networking and semiconductors.
