To give you a better idea of who I am beside just a lover of compound interest, I can safely say that I also love God, my wife, my son, my family, and my friends.  I would be a very rich man if all I had were the items I just listed even if I didn’t have compound interest in the mix.  But, I’ve got to tell you that compound interest is pretty amazing.  I believe that planning your finances and exercising good and proper stewardship of it is a great thing and through this blog I hope you also grow to love compound interest too.

A little more about me from a historical perspective.  I was born in New Jersey and when I was 8 years old we moved to Arlington, TX. I attended Baylor University where I graduated magna cum laude with a double major of Business Administration and Environmental Studies. I then received a Master’s degree in Environmental Management from the University of Houston. For the past 20 years I’ve worked in and around the oil and gas industry in roles ranging from compliance, project management and pipe sales. In the summer of 2015, I left the traditional salaried work force and will be pursing some other personal business ventures.

At this point in my life, I’ve also realized that more than other vocational pursuits, I enjoy learning about personal finance and want to help others maximize the opportunities before them. In order to share what I’ve picked up over the years and enable others to experience peace and prosperity in their financial life, I’m excited to come to you through this blog.  I look forward to interacting with readers and hearing their stories of personal finance success.

My wife, son and I live outside of Houston in the suburb of Sugar Land. As far as hobbies go, I am thoroughly addicted to road cycling and find myself on long (80+ miles) rides most weekends. I also enjoy traveling in the US and internationally, learning about and drinking wine, water sports, home improvement projects, acoustic guitar, and of course I enjoy personal finance.   Oh yeah and I love compound interest too!
