Posting superficial updates on social media wastes everyone's time. Instead, you can come to this now page any time you want to know what I'm up to.

I've been trading from home for over a decade - it's been a really hard journey - individual traders are small fish swimming in the sea with some very big sharks, and 95% fail in their first year. No trader ever feels like they've truly cracked it, because the markets are always changing - which is why I love it - because it forces me to focus on my own self development. I have recently started to coach others who want to learn to trade.

I have had great personal success with investment systems I have researched over the last few years. I am building an investment website to help my friends and family use my strategies and automated tools. I'm intending to make the best site in the world for DIY investors.

I am teaching yoga to a set of students I love, ranging from marathon runners & pilates teachers to stiff but enthusiastic retirees. I feel deeply honoured that many have been learning with me since 2006.

I am designing my own infrastucture. This includes everything from building the web servers that are hosting this blog, and other ideas. I'm prioritising becoming independent from the big cloud data abusers like Facebook and want to help others do the same.

I'm trying to be a good parent to my daughter (18) and son (16), both at that important crossroads time of life. I am so grateful to them for reminding me not to miss the wood for the trees.

And I'm living in beautiful Blagdon, North Somerset in the United Kingdom.
