I am a professional blogger, writer, researcher and successful investor who contributes to a number of reputable online media outlets and news sources. A graduate of Iowa State University, I’m now a full-time freelance writer, business consultant and independent real estate investor. Currently, I write for Inc.com, Entrepreneur.com, TheNextWeb.com and BiggerPockets.com. I have previously contributed to the HuffingtonPost.com, and Business.com, among others. In addition to journalism, technical writing and in-depth research, I’m also active in real estate investing and spend weekends volunteering with a local non-profit literacy organization. When I’m not saving the world with my keyboard, I can be found rock climbing.
I pursued my undergraduate degree in English Literature and transitioned to freelance writing full-time upon graduation. The years I spent studying and working the corporate daily grind prepared me well for my work with various companies ranging from small, locally-owned shops to Fortune 500 firms. A featured writer with numerous national publications, I’ve positioned myself at the top of the tech writing field and am known for “translating” technical finance, investing and technology industry jargon into easily digestible, readable content.
Particularly interesting fields for me include investing, real estate, digital media, thought leadership, any and all things Android and iOS, entrepreneurship, and social media.
