Dean Erickson is the founder and CEO of Bionic Capital LLC, a registered investment advisory firm. He worked on Wall Street as an options trader and risk arbitrageur after graduating from Brown University in 1982. He gained the Chartered Financial Analyst designation in 1987.
After Wall Street, he stumbled upon acting and enjoyed the creative process. He guest-starred on Frasier, starred as Gabriel Knight in the awarding-winning video game The Beast Within, and acted in several Shakespearean productions. He began writing and created multiple movie scripts before writing a mystery thriller, No One Laughs at a Dead Clown, under the name, DC Erickson.
When a computer glitch caused the loss of his outline for novel number two, he turned to the personal development genre. Choose Your Story, Choose Your Life was published months later. His most recent book Act. Adapt. Achieve. introduces his innovative Idea Circle™ which explains the process of achieving success. The book offers other tools and techniques to help readers achieve success more quickly and consistently in any endeavor.
Dean has worked full-time in the investment advisory business since 2006, and at Bionic Capital since its founding in 2009. He is happy to say he has created his perfect job, and he loves his boss.
Prophetically, he was voted Most Versatile by his high school senior class a long, long time ago. More recently, he was elected to the Midcoast Maine Sports Hall of Fame and the Maine Basketball Hall of Fame.
He lives in California with his wonderful wife, Lisa.
