About Me

I am 53 years old, happily married, and obsessed with staying in shape so that when I do finally hit 65, I'll be able to have an active retirement. I'm also obsessed with AAPL stock, and have been long since 2004. During the day, I'm a Manufacturing Manager at a music publishing non-profit called Oregon Catholic Press. At night - after racquetball, I relax in my chair, next to my wife, with my macbook, researching stocks, and reading articles. I've seen the rampant consolidation of Print Publishing from the inside, or "from the front lines" for lack of a better phrase. The last 15 years have been a wild ride.. I can describe my 34 years in print publishing as fun and exciting for the first twenty years. The last 14... Not so much. Managing growth is fun - managing shrink is pure hell... But I'm a survivor, here I am with stories to tell.. Life experiences make me uniquely qualified to talk about drug and alcohol addiction, gaining and losing weight, and the drug "interferon", and of course - AAPL stock. I love the caribbean islands and have been known to indulge in scuba diving while there.
