Steve Symington

After graduating from the University of Montana, where he studied Computer Science (Software Systems) and Mathematics, Steve worked for seven years in the defense & aerospace industry as a sales engineer, software developer, and network administrator. Eventually -- and inevitably -- his love for responsible long-term investing and delving into 10-Ks led him to The Motley Fool, where he has served as a Technology Specialist since early 2013. If you enjoy his musings, connect with him on Twitter and Facebook so you don't miss a thing.
