7 Ways to Save Money When You are Young and Naive
A lack of experience or knowledge shouldn’t stand in the way of smart money moves.
I am a tech writer and journalist for more than 20 years who contributes to several respected online publications including BusinessInsider, Inc., and Entrepreneur. In addition to journalism, writing about social good companies and in-depth research, I’m also active in my community and enjoy metaphysical book reading groups, as well as hiking on the amazing trails of the San Francisco Bay Area.
I graduated with a degree in Communications at UC Santa Barbara and soon afterward began my journalism career. I worked in TV news from 1994 to 2009. I served as web editor and writer at KNTV, the NBC station in San Francisco. I wrote for KGO, KRON and KPIX in San Francisco as well. I also worked as a radio anchor, assignment desk manager, reporter, editor and producer at KEYT in Santa Barbara for 10 years. Since then I worked for different agencies and startups. Now I am back working with various newsrooms across the country.
I currently write pieces on productivity, career advice, tech trends, AI, marketing, social media, as well companies that help underserved communities around the world. Several Fortune 500 companies utilize my writing skills for their blogs and other online content.
