What I am Passionate About: I love solving “people” problems. I really enjoy talking through a problem someone is struggling with and watching that “aha” come across their face when they figure it all out. That also goes for finance issues — that moment when you give someone a tool or a tip and their face lights up. It’s a great feeling. I’m also very integrated into “nerd” culture. I play D&D, watch all the superhero movies, and have a huge LOTR poster on my wall.

What Podcasts I Recommend: I don’t listen to too many of these but I love The Fairer Cents. There is a long list of ones I want to listen to but shouldn’t recommend quite yet.

Books I Recommend: Finance for the People by Paco de Leon, Non-Violent Communication by Marshall B. Rosenberg
