Note all 5 questions must now be answered in order for you to be approved for the group. #1 What is your interest in QF ? Why are you drawn to it ?

I am drawn to QF because I enjoy mathematics and computation. I got bored with day to day computing tasks so QF provided a new set of challenges. QF is also a natural place for those who like numbers, models, and real life application.

What do you hope this group will do for you?

No answer yet

The main purpose of this group is for local NY/NJ Quants and Quant wannabe's to meet in person or discuss on the message board. Would you be interested in actively participating on the Message Boards or meeting in person?

What is your professional background ? What was/is your careerpath to QF ?

I've got a degree in Computer Science from Cornell University, with a specialization in Finance. I've been programming for over 10 years but have recently been focusing my efforts on modeling and overall lifecycle management for derivatives.

The Wilmott Forums, Quantnet.org and Nuclearphynance are great online financial engineering communities. The purpose of this group specifically is to encourage active group participation. Have you RSVP'd yet YES/NO/MAYBE for our next event?

Introduction

Hey -- I'm involved with lots of quant support work, mostly around Credit Default Swaps and IR Swaps. Mathematics and computation are a passion.
