Team Leader. Business Consultant. Writer. Traveler.
Be human. Be honest. Be curious.
Welcome to my home on the web.
The Wallet Hacker – In late 2022, I launched The Wallet Hacker, a personal finance site that shows its readers how to get the most value out of their credit cards, banking products and personal finance choices. Unlike many of the other sites I write for, this site focuses on cash and cash equivalent credit card rewards. My audience isn’t the “travel hacking” community, but rather the everyday person who just wants a bit more value out of their wallet.
Flying – I am currently working on upping my general aviation game and pursuing my instrument rating. This will allow me to fly in conditions where I can’t maintain visual reference to the ground. Practically, I’m pursuing the instrument rating to become a more competent, safer pilot.
Public speaking – I have booked several public speaking engagements in the next year, so you’ll see me out on the road in 2023. In October 2022, I presented to a standing-room only crowd at the Chicago Seminars, a frequent flyer and travel hacking conference. If you want to book me for public speaking about travel, miles and points, personal finance or business strategy send me a message.
Going full-time freelance – At the beginning of 2022, I made the decision to go full-time freelance. This was a deliberate choice made for a long list of reasons but at the top of the list was a desire to have more flexibility in where and how I work. Going freelance was one of the best choices I made in my career.
Freelance writing – In 2022, I picked up a ton of freelance writing clients. I now write or have written for Forbes, Nerdwallet, Bankrate, Creditcards.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Points Guy and a handful of other private clients.
