Read the Full Q&A: Everett Capital Management's Todd Hurlbut: Detecting Patterns in Alternative Assets

Age: 35

Education: B.A. from the University of Virginia; Chartered Market Technician (CMT).

Family: Wife: Shannon; Labrador retriever: Luca. Baby Boy due to be born in October 2011.

Previous Positions: "I worked at Salomon Smith Barney from 1999 to 2006 in the private client services division, where I managed money for high-net-worth investors and managed discretionary portfolios for those clients. This is where I developed my strategy -- my passion was managing the money, but I couldn't do what I wanted, so I decided to start my own firm."

Tell us something interesting that few people know about you. "I swam competitively growing up, and I earned a swimming scholarship to the University of Virginia. I also had an opportunity to mentor for more than two years (2004-2006) with Ed Seykota, a commodities/futures trader and trend follower, who is profiled in the book 'Market Wizards.' I was part of The Trading Tribe that met at his house in Lake Tahoe twice a month."
