My name is Michael Wright and I’m a junior finance major at the University of Notre Dame. I played baseball for the Fighting Irish as a freshmen before an elbow injury ended my career. As a freshman I lettered and joined teammate A.J. Pollock as the only players in Notre Dame Baseball History to hit home runs in their first collegiate at bat. Since the conclusion of my baseball career, I have been able to devote more time to my lifelong passion: the stock market. I am currently putting the finishing touches on an algorithmic trading platform that I designed in the Fall of 2008.
