Meet Your Mentor

Since 1998 I have professionally traded stocks, options, futures and FX and provided personal trading coaching to many students (including beginners, stock brokers, financial advisers and hedge fund managers) from many countries. 

Many of my students eventually became my friends, and we stay in touch long after their personal trading coaching is completed. They tell me that my trading expertise and my trade coaching experience are complemented by my personable, approachable nature, healthy sense of humor, and my emphasis on improving their trading psychology (the mindset).

I earned my Ph.D. at the Moscow Institute of Chemical Engineering in Russia. While in Russia, I invented, built, and tested life support and recycling systems for space and deep ocean programs.

After immigrating to the United States, I enjoyed a successful 16-year career in engineering and project management with American and international corporations and succeeded in patenting one of my inventions.

In 1997 I took a one-year sabbatical to study the business of trading stocks, options, futures and FX, so I could make my money work for me. My best mentors were professional traders – people who risk their own money.

It gives me great satisfaction to see my students succeed to become financially secure and  have more time to enjoy life.
