I'm a published author, editor, writer, and online contributor.

I write and speak about technology, money, personal finance, travel, lifestyle, and career tips, and my work has appeared in media and publishing outlets, websites, apps, mobile platforms, newsletters, and magazines.

In 2015 I launched Scribe, a publishing imprint, and social media and content consultancy. 

My first book, The Credit Cleanup Book (Praeger), was published in October 2014. I'm working on a sequel. 

My second book, The First Time (Scribe), was released in February 2017, and was my first work of fiction, and also my first work of erotica (why not? 😜 ).

My female travel safety site, Girl Going Gone, was launched in 2012 and aims to help women travel safely around the world.

Most recently, I was the content manager at robo-advisor Betterment, a managing content editor for a financial services CRM company, and I also worked a bit in broadcast journalism for Bloomberg TV in London and at CNBC in the U.S. for the primetime show Mad Money w/Jim Cramer

Before all this, I worked in financial services and lending, first at a Fortune 250 company, and later at what was then the nation's 4th largest bank.
