Upon graduating with a Bachelor’s degree concentrated in Finance, Joey worked at a “Big Four” (Ernst & Young) accounting firm before exploring the world of credit cards. After learning proper professional and financial practices through federal audits, he moved on to his second job, where he was introduced to CreditCards.com/Bankrate as a data analyst. As time passed, his interests drifted away from data analysis and into the communication of credit card essentials. Over the past two years, he’s shared his expertise and has brought understanding to complex topics as a writer and editor for sites like CreditCards.com, Bankrate.com and NextAdvisor. His advice on avoiding common credit card fees, top balance transfer tactics and more financial tips have been featured on MSN Money and other various news publications.

“Growing up in the DC Metropolitan area, I was interested in the world of finance at a young age. As I’ve grown older and made more connections, it’s become apparent that the need-to-knows of personal finance aren’t taught widely enough. I want to help not only my peers, but everyone in need of financial aid by spreading the basics of saving, budgeting and understanding credit cards as a route to becoming knowledgeable on how to handle your money.”
