I was a full-time options trader on the CBOE. I’ve been in every single equity pit on the floor...but I was never in any fist fights.
Why do you talk so fast? Anddddd...I was born this way. It was helpful on the CBOE floor.
LULU, GPRO, DIS, UA and DIA. And Big Lizard and Jade Lizard - because they’re awesome!
The people, and I really enjoy working with Jenny. We went to high school together and still have a lot of the same friends.
I graduated from Second City, my water broke with my daughter on the trading floor, and I’m a fast eater.
