I am a dividend growth investor who seeks out companies with a long history of increases in revenue, earnings and dividends. I then enhance those dividends and increase my income through the use of a proactive option strategy. My goal is to create a stream of passive income that will provide me with a life of financial stability and security. I am also an avid amateur photographer. I have been taking photographs most of my life. My primary camera is the Nikon D7100 with an 18-135 mm lens attached, but I'm also known to use other lenses as well as the camera on my iPhone 5. I created this website to put all my strategies for stock market investing and financial independence, my better photographic images, and my random thoughts and ideas in one centralized location. By putting this all in one place, hopefully I will eventually become a better investor, a better photographer and a better thinker.
