About Chad

Chad, who resides in central Ohio, graduated from the Ohio State University with a Bachelor’s in Communication Technology and holds a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) from Franklin University in Ohio.

Throughout his high school and scouting careers, Chad found enjoyment in service and coaching. He was a peer tutor in high school as well as holding several leadership positions in scouting. Chad obtained the rank of Eagle Scout in 2004.

After obtaining his MBA, he started to become interested in personal finance. Chad started blogging in late 2016 that tracked his net worth while paying off over $40,000 in consumer debt.

In 2018 he switched careers to increase his income and get out of debt faster. During this switch, he found frugal hobbies like day trips, hiking, urban & rural exploration, photography, home cooking, and personal finance meetups.

Currently, Chad is actively working on growing a central Ohio-based personal finance group as well as shifting to service-based entrepreneurship.

He is also writing a book focused on helping introduce financial independence.
