I was born on Friday the 13th a long time ago in a far away galaxy. I went to Catholic grade and high school.
My first published article appeared in the July, 1965 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman magazine for model train hobbyists. I was 17 years old.
I totally confused my New Jersey and went to college at the University of Arizona – had never been further west than Philadelphia. Got a degree in History & Governemnt and strated law school. Interrupted by the Nixon lotto when I drafted into the Army in 1970. After two amazing years (in Vol. 2 of my autobiography), I went back to law school. Finished 1 1/2 years of law school (guess I’m a half-assed lawyer) and worked for the City of Tucson in the City Clerk’s office. Then weirdly got hired as a Park Ranger out of the blue (also somewhere in the autobiography of 3 volumes.
Then the Park Rangers were disbanded (Jim Ronstadt, Linda’s brother needed $250,000 to repair his new wiped out golf course) so I headed to Las Vegas to make my living betting on baseball games (I had a system!) Of that didn’t work (see why my autobiography is aptly titled “My Only Crime Was Being Born”?
So I went back to college at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas and got a second degree in Accounting.
Since then I have been an auditor with the US Army and now the Air Force written audit reports for over 30 years. I first wrote my book in the 1987 in Seoul, Korea. I have extensively revised and improved my investing book since then. Also I have written my own newsletter showing the best stocks for my book for over 15 years.
