Life

My name is Hunter Morris. I was born in North Texas then graduated with a bachelor's degree in computer science from Northwestern University. I now live in the Barbican in London. Every once in a while, I get homesick for Chicago or Texas. I don't get homesick for anywhere else.

My first USENET post was about Kirby's Dreamland (yes, it was after the September that never ended). I think the Dunning-Kruger effect is funny and I don't believe that the human mind is a blank slate.

Work

I founded Smarkets with my colleague Jason Trost then left in 2012 to return to the world of finance.

Previously I worked for derivatives market maker Wolverine Trading in Chicago and London. It was (and I imagine still is) a great place to work.
