Hi. I'm Rob.

I'm a dad and a trader.

I love to make money when stocks go down. (I'm a short seller).

I live in Austin, Texas and Houston, Texas, and sometimes in New York City during baseball season.

My life's work is to inspire traders to do their best, to seek the easier way to do things, and to explain things in the simplest way possible. 


My Philosophy of Life:

I seek after peace of mind and true happiness. 


My highest goal is to maintain peace of mind.

I do this by avoiding things I will regret; or by trying my best to not regret my mistakes.

I believe in:

  • Forgiveness.
  • Avoiding nostalgia as much as possible. (Nostalgia is the unproductive obsession with "how great stuff was in the past."
  • Being happy for people and being good to them. I believe kindness is its own reward. 
  • Living as much as possible in a state of observation - and not becoming attached to outcomes. 
  • Not setting goals; instead, I just decide what is important and do it, and the results take care of themselves.
  • Discipline, which I define as "doing the right thing at the right time." All freedom is the result of discipline, which seems paradoxical at first.
  • Waking up early.
