In Medellin

I fell off the internet for a few weeks now, sorry about that.  I’m starting week 3 here in Medellin, and I’ve had virtually no downtime.  On the weekends I’ve had to catch up on work and unwind a little bit, and I didn’t have the motivation to write when my eyes and brain were …

One More Week

After talking with Jeff, I realized that I wasn’t clear in my blog last week about when I’m leaving for Colombia.  He thought it was imminent, but I’m actually not going until Feb 17th.  Sorry for any confusion.  If I get a post up next week, it should be my last one from the United …

As much as I talk about staying put and being content here in my little bubble of paradise, I end up booking trips eventually.  I’ve had a great period of productivity (although it was a randomly crappy month of trading results, but I have a new algorithm running now that is very promising) recently, but …

2020 Begins

I wasn’t sure how long my holiday blogging hiatus would be, but it seems like a good time to get back to it.  Hope everyone had a great holiday season, although here in Puerto Rico we’ve just started. Tomorrow is Three Kings Day, which for many people here is bigger than Christmas and New Years.  …

Merry Christmas!

I’m currently in the air on my way to Michigan, looking at the clouds floating over the Caribbean.  I’m spending almost a week in the town where I grew up, which is probably the most since I was on holiday break in college.  The ocean below still looks warm and inviting, but I know soon …
