Learn More About Money, Tax planning, and Social Security

I’m a Certified Financial Planner, tax practitioner, retired Navy veteran, and writer. I love to write articles on financial topics that help everyday people learn more about money. I especially like exploring financial planning subjects that no one else has tackled before, writing about IRS tax forms, and helping people with financial questions they haven’t found the answers to.
