I'm a meticulous researcher and writer with 15+ years of experience. With a knack for tackling complex subjects using simple language, I deliver engaging, actionable content that's easy to read. I cover a lot of personal finance topics to help people make better choices so they have more money and time to spend on the things that matter most.
In between writing gigs, I'm a traveler and adventurer. I've spent more than two decades traveling the world and have kayaked waterfalls in New Zealand, climbed an active volcano in Chile, swam with hammerhead sharks in the Galapagos Islands, surfed in Costa Rica, stood at Auschwitz’s gates in Poland, fled raging bush fires in Australia, witnessed a military coup in Ecuador, been stung by countless jellyfish, and called home a small tent a coconut’s throw from the Caribbean Sea on a remote Honduran beach. I love to travel off the beaten path so I can interact with local communities and cultures. I've learned that people all around the world love their children, want to work hard, and enjoy a good joke.
In the past, I've been a real estate broker, English teacher, and a trip leader for an adventure travel company, and I've studied classical piano and flute.
BLOGGING & ARTICLE WRITING
I create well-researched, organized, and engaging content designed to educate, entertain, and inspire. I specialize in personal finance, real estate, retirement, investing, technical analysis, travel, and living abroad. You may have read some of my articles on Investopedia, NBC News, Yahoo, Forbes, TODAY, and SFGate.
As a copywriter, I help businesses and entrepreneurs get their message out by providing everything from catchy landing pages and corporate bios, to product reviews and press releases. Before writing anything, I'll get to know you, your brand, your competition, and your target audience to make sure I'm using the best voice to reach your potential customers.
EDITING & REWRITING
If you've written content for your audience -- and it's not quite right -- I can help, whether you need a few minor edits or a complete overhaul. I'm especially good at cutting out the clutter and making dry, technical topics more lively and accessible.
