About Tim

Applying the trading mindset to achieve a successful and fulfilling life.

My Story

Trader TimHi I’m Tim, originally from the Chicagoland are now living in sunny Scottsdale, AZ. I’ve been a full time trader since October 2009. I day trade the E-mini futures markets and swing trade stocks & options.

I’ve had the pleasure to speak at many TradersEXPO’s over the years and go up against some of the industry’s top trader’s like John Carter in the Infinity Trading Challenge (and win!).

Trading has opened a world of opportunity and the mindset carries over in all aspects of my life. When I’m not in my office trading, you can find me outside riding my bike and exploring new places.

I’ve traveled to 3 continents, 8 countries, and 43 of the 50 US states.

I really enjoy remodeling houses, working in the garage, and building things. I’m a graduate of Arizona State University where I studied design and business. I love learning new things and meeting new people so feel free to introduce yourself.
