Meet the Bear Bull Traders Team!
Andrew Aziz (Vancouver, BC)
In 2015, he published his first book, How to Day Trade for a Living, a simple, concise and practical book written for everyone. Later, in 2016, he started Bear Bull Traders Community (formerly Vancouver-Traders) as a place for serious traders to share their knowledge and expertise with others traders around the world.
Andrew is in a lifelong affair with Nature. Whenever he is not trading or behind his computer, he is in the outdoors either hiking, trekking, skiing, or high altitude climbing. Ask him about breathing at 20,000 feet!
Brian Pezim (Vancouver, BC)
The advent of the Internet and online trading changed the financial industry dramatically. While holding down a regular 9 to 5 corporate job, I tried my hand at day trading during the dotcom era. I made a lot of money and then lost a lot of money. It was a humbling lesson but I learned much and thankfully did not suffer the fate of many who lost more than they started with.
I retired from the corporate world in 2014 after over 30 years of service. Andrew and I met and worked together for a number of years in another field. Today we continue to work together doing what we both enjoy; trading and helping others achieve their goals.
Carlos Moreta (Teaneck, New Jersey)
Before day trading, Carlos spent 12 years in logistics and customer operations management for a home appliance company. After the company made the decision to relocate to another state, Carlos took this as an opportunity to get into day trading, something he was always passionate about.
Carlos enjoys outdoor activities like cycling and snowboarding, and he has recently began to explore mountain hiking!

Michael Baehr (Camarillo, CA)
Michael retired as a Sergeant Major after 23 years of service in the United States Marine Corps. During his time in the service, he taught fellow Marines on subjects like strategic leadership, mentorship, and discipline. In February of 2018, Michael stumbled upon Andrew’s book, “How to Day Trade for a Living”, while visiting Marines in the work center. Upon finishing the book, he came to the realization that to become a consistently profitable trader it would require time, substantial training, and a ton of self-evaluation; so he joined Bear Bull Traders as a lifetime member, attended the educational classes, developed a business plan, and started reading psychology books to pursue his desire of becoming a full-time trader upon retirement from the service.
Michael has been happily married for 20 years, and has 2 wonderful children. Outside of trading he enjoys spending time with his family, volunteering as a soccer referee, and playing sports.
