Brent L. Leonard has led a full and varied life to date, starting with acceptance to Stanford University on a basketball scholarship, then earning a teaching credential from the University of Pacific in Stockton. This resulted in a brief career as a high school band director, whereupon the magnetic attraction of San Francisco led to a 2 decade career as the proprietor of a popular bar/restaurant.
Finally selling the business and requiring investment knowledge, Brent moved to San Diego and gained his brokerage license, just in time for the 1987 meltdown. Moving back to San Francisco, he joined the Charles Schwab Co. as Senior Options Principal and RIA, retiring after another 2 decades' career as the millennium turned.
Brent still lives in the beautiful S.F.Marina district, after a stint as Adjunct Professor of Technical Analysis at Golden Gate University, and is still active in the Technical Securities' Analysts Assoc. (TSAASF) where he is past President, Board member and Editor of the Review. He also is active in the SF Bay Area Options Group, and plays trombone with various bands - two of which have recorded CDs recently. He is an active investor, manages family finances, and writes a blog on Sentiment - the topic on which he earned his Chartered Market Technician designation from the MTA.
