About

I've been writing about the markets for nearly 10 years and have a passion for teaching others that the market isn't as complicated as people like to make it. I love all things creative and I'm passionate about volunteering in the nonprofit sector. I live in Florida with my amazing wife, Cassie, and I often set up a mobile office on one of the Gulf of Mexico beaches. Email me at tim@exposition-creative.com.
