Dean’s original career track as a concert violinist shifted into science after earning a BSEE degree in electrical engineering, magna cum laude and with honors in physics, from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and then an MS in electrical engineering and a PhD in psychology from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. For a decade he worked on advanced research and development at AT&T Bell Laboratories and GTE Laboratories. Before joining the research staff at IONS in 2001 he held appointments at Princeton University, SRI International, and other academic and industrial facilities.
Is an experienced professional with 21 solid years of progressive roles in emerging financial industries, as Chief Financial Officer, Fund Principal, Portfolio Manager, Research Analyst, and Senior Auditor. From startups to Fortune 500s and investment funds in more than 60 countries, Mr. Jacob established early successes to build financial and operational competencies within high performance organizations.
As the Vice President at his boutique investment firm in Los Angeles, Vin Prime Capital, Mr. Jacob constructed and managed a proprietary index fund to capture 90% of market capitalization within a basket of the top 20 cryptocurrencies, designed to deliver risk-adjusted beta to Bitcoin performance. For the venture capital arm of the fund, he managed a portfolio of blockchain-enabled projects across protocol infrastructures and emerging technologies including cybersecurity, IoT, quantum computing, AI, B2C platforms, big data, scaling, privacy, and distributed computing.
Within the rigors of multi-strategy investment funds, his prior role at top consulting firm Boston Consulting Group (BCG) was Emerging Technologies Portfolio Manager. In this role Mr. Jacob managed a global portfolio of early-stage ventures (Seed to Series-A) across the industries of energy distribution, big data, B2C platforms, and health care. He also developed an investment framework for internally-developed ventures which coached internal talent on venture life cycle, key investment criteria, investor considerations, unit economics, and hypergrowth.
As a daily yoga and meditation practitioner of 15 years’ experience, Mr. Jacob believes that tapping into inner consciousness can enable new modalities for all learning with practical applications, well beyond the capabilities of narrowly-focused intellect and logic. He appreciates that this inner awareness is encouraged by stillness and meditation, and that the higher self can guide the mind to new sources of creativity and inspiration for continual growth. These things drew Mr. Jacob to the methods of remote viewing, which consistently transcend intellectually-limited methods of technology for deployment in fund management.
Beyond finance and innovation, Mr. Jacob has a passion for nature and culture through photography, travel, and fitness. He has traveled and worked in 60+ nations. Mr. Jacob received his M.B.A. from INSEAD Singapore, and his B.A. in International Management from Pepperdine University.

Soul Rider LLC advisor emeritus
continues to be fascinated by worldwide financial markets after his 46 distinguished years among them as trading house owner, trader, and computerized financial programming systems designer. He has worn many hats and has seen, as he says, “just about everything!” He estimates his single biggest financial project to date was his trading a total of $20M in assets over 7 years for gains averaging 48% annually, and compounded during that time.
He has conducted research on synthetic currencies using the new correlation techniques of T-Sets and Vectoring. He has lectured on AI (artificial intelligence) in the context of expert financial systems and cellular automata applied to trading. Before the Internet was even a thing on the public’s mind, in 1991 at the University of Chicago’s Artificial Intelligence Symposium he presented about trading commodities using expert systems.
In 1972-1976 Archer became one of the first people to develop and test financial trading systems using a then state-of-the-art Data General Nova scientific minicomputer at University of Colorado’s Physics Department. He has programmed in Smalltalk, Prolog and Visual Basic.
Harvey Newquist, considered by many as an early dean of AI, described Jonathan’s Wave in July 1988 (in Newquist’s magazine “AI Expert: The Magazine of Artificial Intelligence in Practice”) as a combination expert system and neural network of a type not ‘officially’ developed until the early 1990’s. Jonathan’s Wave was featured twice in Futures magazine (July 1987, July 1988), as well as in Registered Representative and Financial Planner magazine. Jonathan’s Wave was researched and executed using three microcomputers at Superfund, Commodities Corporation, Refco and other companies.
Archer published the Artificial Intelligence Timing Letter for investors from 1984-1986.

- The Goodman Method Mentoring Course: Lesson One
In the time-honored style of a teacher selecting a favorite student for his most valuable knowledge and insights, Mr. Goodman taught his financial trading methods to only Michael. Although having more than one personal skill set is now desirable in our day and age, Goodman also maintained a distinct but separate and accessible, informal practice in which he provided personalized intuitive advice from his Heart. Charlie thus counseled hundreds of people in many evenings from his favorite Eads coffee shop.
Archer moved then to Hawaii where he co-owned a commodity brokerage house between 1980 and 1985 for Heinold Commodities, the world’s largest futures broker-dealer company of its time.
Passing along the expertise he first learned with initial coaching from his long-time friend and mentor, Goodman, Archer conducted his own mentoring program from 1998 to 2015. He taught over 100 hand-selected students the Goodman Wave Theory passed down to him by Charlie.
Archer has called Colorado home for decades, and now lives in Golden and Steamboat Springs. He is married, and has four grown children and eight grandchildren.
