As a young man Shane was inspired by the financial wisdom of greats like Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger. After graduating from Depaul University with a Bachelors in Finance, Shane began his career in investing in 2002. A self-professed "computer nerd", Shane spent the first decade of his career developing automated Futures arbitrage strategies that would ultimately prove very lucrative and help fund his dream of living a financially free life. Shane is passionate about CryptoCurrencies and alternative investments- and loves sharing his knowledge with others. In addition to investing and consulting, Shane is also a Core Energetics/Radical Aliveness Practitioner- and offers therapy sessions specific to overcoming emotional triggers around money and thus making more grounded financial decisions. He lives in Boulder, CO with his wife and son and in his free time enjoys hiking, reading and spending time with his family.
A note about storing cryptocurrency: I recommend anyone with a meaningful value of digital assets to use cold storage while using a third party to hold their private keys such as Kingdom Trust or Bitgo. Custodians are used to protect against physical theft. Private keys should never be in one place or at home.
