Joe Pye started writing about debt and personal finance five 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. In 2021, Pye earned First Place in the Green Eyeshade awards for “Best Blog” for his side-project BrowardBeer.com.
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.
