Why Emerald?

We realize how frustrating and time consuming it can be to have to learn BOTH trading and coding. Stand on the shoulders of others and get to the trading part faster.

Dave is skilled at both teaching and writing code for trading. He wrote his first major computer app as a young college student, before anyone knew what an App was, and he proved that card counting at blackjack is a money-making strategy - BEFORE the MIT Blackjack Team had been heard of. Upon graduation, he nearly went to Vegas - to see how that might have turned out you can watch the 2008, Kevin Spacey movie, "21". Instead, he hired on in the prestigious Edison Engineering program at General Electric and he has been imagining possibilites and writing code ever since.
