Hi, I'm Drew. I'm a coder from USA. I have a background in zoology, computer science, and music. I'm interested in rationality, bio-science, reading, gaming, FOSS, economics, guitars, and FI/RE.

@arteteco It stands for Financial Independence / Retiring Early. It's mostly about reducing your unnecessary lifestyle expenses and saving/investing 50% or more of your income so that you can retire within about 10 years.

@drewfer Oh, cool, I guess I do that too but I didn't know there was a term for it. Mostly as saving, and I've done some good crypto in the past (but now... let's not talk about it =D )

What are you investing into, if I may ask?

@arteteco I have some real estate and my taxable account is made of ETF's that mimic the 'Golden Butterfly Portfolio'

@drewfer howdy! Your avatar is great, of course Vader plays bass!

@jrollans Thanks! I wish I could take credit but some anonymous genius on the internet made it.

As a bassist, I totally agree with your observation about Vader.

@drewfer it’s so obvious now, I feel like there should be some bass-centric group called Darth Bassist.
