Joe Pye started writing about debt and personal finance more than three years ago while attending Florida Atlantic University, where he served as Editor-in-Chief of the student-run newspaper, the University Press.

Before graduating with a bachelor’s degree in multimedia journalism, Pye placed as a finalist for the Mark of Excellence award by the Society of Professional Journalists Region 3 for feature writing and in-depth reporting.

Since taking a full-time position as associate editor at Debt.com in 2018, Pye has become a certified debt management professional who’s applied what he’s learned to his personal life by paying down more than $22,000 worth of combined credit card, student loan, auto and tax debt in less than two years.
