Hi there! I am a nationally recognized credit card expert with more than a decade of experience in helping Americans make smarter decisions about their money.
My recent experience
I am Chief Industry Analyst at CompareCards.com, which is part of the LendingTree family. During more than a decade in the personal finance space, I have appeared on many of the nation’s best-known news outlets, such as:
- CBS Evening News
- The Today Show
- Fox Business Network
- And more.
I have also have been quoted numerous times by The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Bloomberg.com and other top media outlets throughout the nation. In addition, I frequently speak at financial conferences around the country and have written for many publications, including Business Insider and American Banker.
Prior to my current role at CompareCards.com, I was Senior Industry Analyst at CreditCards.com for more than four years. Before that, I worked as a journalist. I led online editorial teams for an investing education website, two TV stations, a college sports website and a newspaper. I found my true passion, however, in helping people make smarter decisions about their money.
My passion project
That passion led me to create TalkingInClass.org — a site devoted to improving financial literacy in America’s classrooms. I was inspired to create that site after speaking to my son’s elementary school class about credit. Blown away by wisdom of their questions and their eagerness to learn, I decided to devote myself to getting other money-smart parents to share what they know with kids in their area. I truly believe that can make a difference in financial literacy in America.
If you’d like to get involved, reach out to me via email or social media. I’d love to hear from you.
Currently, I live in Austin, Texas, with my amazing wife and son. I graduated from the University of Texas with a journalism degree. I geek out about sports, travel, food and Star Wars, but mostly, I’m about spending as much time with my family as I can.
