I clearly remember my first credit card. I was working as an editorial assistant in New York, making a pitiful entry-level salary. I could barely afford food and rent, and desperately needed a wardrobe update. So, I applied for an American Express card. Thus began my relationship with credit card debt (and shoes). I am the senior managing editor at CreditCards.com. After graduating from the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Journalism, I worked as an editor and writer in New York and in Austin. I’ve also edited numerous books, taught journalism at the University of Texas, flipped a few houses and spend my free time exploring the sights and sounds of this wonderful city.
