I graduated with a degree in math and economics from the University of California at Santa Barbara in 1988. That led me to ten years with the Social Security Administration where I worked as an actuary, analyzing how much changes in the law would affect the finances of the program over a ten-year period. I was also an associate member of the Society of Actuaries from 1995 to 2016.
In 1997, as a hobby, I started the Wizard of Odds, as a source for the analysis of casino games. There are so many myths and bad advice surrounding gambling that I set out to clear the air with a factual math-based approach to playing the whole gamut of casino games. That web site became an enormous success and remains the premier source on casino gambling to this day. If you don’t believe it, Google any casino game or gambling term and notice which site is all over the ten top.
In 2014, I sold his web Wizard-branded web sites and continue to work on a part-time basis for the buyer. With the rest of my time, I am available on a consultancy basis for any project in the gaming world that is mathematical in nature.
