My First Post: Who Am I And Why Am I Starting This Website.


Hello World! I finally did it. I became serious and decided to take the big plunge to launch my own blog. After thinking about it for a couple of years I said to myself, enough thinking. Let’s write. I knew I loved writing, but it was actually my wife who pushed me from dreaming about it to actually launching something.Thanks wifey. I had to get my wonderful ideas across to my readers somehow.

A Little Background On Me

I was born in Houston but quickly moved to Silicon Valley at the age of 2. My father had just landed a new position at National Semiconductor in 1983. It was an offer he couldn’t resist so my family made the big move to the sunshine state. I spent most of my formative years in Cupertino from 1989 to 1996 and consider it to be my hometown forever. I received my Bachelors in Marketing from San Jose State, and most recently obtained my Masters in Information Systems from the University of San Francisco. I’ve worked in large tech companies here in the bay in varying business roles.

My wife and I got married in May 2014 in Canada. She definitely is a Canadian girl. She came to visit California for a vacation, we met and had lunch, and the rest is history. We’ve been married a little over three strong years now and we travel as much as we can.

What This Blog Will Focus On

Our original idea was to write about personal finances: Boosting income, minimizing expenses, and generally creating a clean and sustainable way to live. We’ve been stellar at this stuff and we want to teach you guys too. Personal finance will be one of the things that I will write a lot about. Other topics that I really think my readers will benefit from include real estate, career management, leisure travel and what it’s like living in Silicon Valley.

My mission statement is to help get your financial foundation in order so that you can enjoy this beautiful life.

So welcome to my site my friend. Let’s get this journey started.
