Hey, I’m Nick!

It’s a pleasure to meet you.

About Me

If you clicked on this page, you’re looking to learn a little more about the man behind the curtain. Thanks for your interest! Curiosity is the second-highest form of flattery.

Here’s what you should know about me, including how my career has progressed so far and the kind of work I do today.

Subject Matter Expertise

I graduated from the University of San Diego with dual degrees in Finance and Accounting. Immediately after, I started my career in the auditing department of Grant Thornton.

After a couple of years, I made my first career pivot. I’d studied accounting to become an entrepreneur, after all, and it made more sense to work for a firm that served small business owners than one whose clients were mostly public corporations.

As a result, I took my next job in the real estate department of a smaller accounting firm that helped local investors. And to my delight, the work was fascinating. For example, I got to:

  • Analyze the investing approaches of high-net-worth real estate investors
  • Discuss tax strategy with accountants who’d studied it since before I was born
  • Study the financial statements and tax returns of hundreds of small businesses

I was a sponge, and I soon crushed the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Exam and got my license. Around the same time, I discovered the Financial Independence/Early Retirement (FIRE) movement, which ignited a lifelong passion for personal finance and lifestyle optimization.

With my expertise and financial security increasing steadily, I set my sights on becoming a business owner myself. Enter content marketing.

Copywriting and Content Marketing Business

After reading dozens of articles looking for the perfect business idea, it occurred to me that I might be able to get paid to write the content I was so obsessed with consuming.

It didn’t take me long to confirm that helping companies with their digital marketing was a well-established business model. It was also perfectly suited for my expertise, skillset, and personal inclinations.

Still, I’m a cautious man (see my major and initial career choice), so I took my time making the transition to full-time freelancing. I spent months studying the industry, pitching clients, and practicing long-form content in the evenings after my 9-to-5 job.

Eventually, I found myself with a good enough portfolio to routinely secure work, a healthy cash runway, and a growing need to get out of public accounting. So, I took the leap, and I’ve never looked back.

In the years since then, I’ve written hundreds of articles and web pages for dozens of businesses in the finance industry. My clients have included financial service providers, SaaS companies, personal finance blogs, and much more, for whom I’ve covered subjects like:

  • Consumer and business credit
  • Stock and real estate investing
  • Tax and retirement planning
  • Personal and commercial insurance 
  • Accounting and bookkeeping

Personal Content Creation

In addition to my day job creating content for businesses in the finance industry, I also publish resources on my own various websites related to my other areas of expertise.

Who says you have to stick to one niche?

Currently, I’m investing most of my spare time into Grapple Tactics, a website dedicated to helping people master the grappling martial arts, which is another passion of mine. If you’re interested in wrestling, mixed martial arts, or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, check it out!
