Bio: I've been lurking WSO since I was in college in order to figure out what I wanted to do, but didn't really participate that much in discussion until after I graduated. Now that my career is at a more stable point, I've decided to get more involved in WSO and help out the community in any way I can.
I went to a target and studied financial engineering and computer science. Despite my mediocre grades and having only three interviews in all, I somehow got an internshipin fixed income S&T in NYC and took a full time offer to go back to work in equities as an execution algo trader in cash equities. After that, I moved to a prop shop in Chicago where I derivatives. So fortunately, I've had pretty broad exposure to different products in trading and I'm happy with how my path has taken me to where I am.
I'm still pretty young, but I guess I've had diverse experiences so hopefully you'll take my unsolicited advice. I could definitely answer a lot of questions related to NYC vs. Chicago, BB S&T vs., fixed income vs. equities, etc.
Feel free to ask any question you like and I'll try my best to answer/direct you to an answer.
