Passionate Real Estate & Personal Finance Writer with Marketing Background

About Me

I love writing. I love real estate, passive income, personal finance, and fintech.

So writing about real estate, about personal finance, about fintech and FI/RE and passive income? It’s what I love best.

My own company, SparkRental, combines these elements of financial education and using technology to make people’s lives easier. Between our free content, our premium courses, and our online services (including a first-of-its-kind rental automation service), we get to help people build their passive income.

You don’t have to take my word that I’m an expert on real estate, personal finance, and technology. Try me for an article, and if you aren’t happy with it, you don’t have to pay for it.

I can make that guarantee because I know you’ll like what you see.

Looking forward to speaking with you about your projects!
