After Mr. Gorman’s service in the U.S. Army, he began a career in the financial markets starting as a “runner” on the Pacific Options Exchange trading floor and working his way up to the position of Registered Options Principle and Vice President for Derivatives Trading. Mr. Gorman married his wife, Jill, in 2005 and they decided to change course and Mr. Gorman pursued his dream of becoming an attorney and practicing law.
