About Me

Hi. I’m Kris.
I write a lot of words on the internet about options, trading, investing, education, parenting and above all thriving via better decisions. Designing a life that is rewarding, sustainable, and enables endurance which is the foundation of getting somewhere worth going to.
Besides being a compulsion, writing has been an unrivaled way to both “learn in public” and “find the others”.
