Current work

I'm currently a senior money and career writer at The Cheat Sheet. My work mostly focuses on issues and news relating to personal finance and career strategy, though I sometimes write about health, fitness, and even marijuana.

I have also had the chance to interview incredibly interesting people, including Mike Rowe, Joe Scarborough, and Tucker Max.

I work on a freelance basis from time to time, and have worked with numerous large companies, including General Motors and Fruit of the Loom, and world-renowned organizations like The Recording Academy of Arts and Sciences.
