Give Me Back My Five Bucks

HIRE ME

If you’re looking to hire someone to run your social media or advertising campaign, guest post on your website, write a column, ghost write for your company, design your business cards – or anything in between – you’ve come to the right place.

I have over 5 years of experience writing, blogging, designing, marketing, and interacting with people online. My client list comes from a wide range of industries, including provincial & municipal government, recreation, direct sales (multi-level marketing), non-profit, real estate, professional sports, telecom, and apparel/fashion.

As a professional freelance writer and blogger, I specialize in personal finance. I have been writing here at Give Me Back My Five Bucks since February 2007. I also write a column for the Toronto Star (moneyville.ca) called “20-Something & Change,” and contribute weekly to Canadian Living Magazine. I have been mentioned in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Globe and Mail, MSN Money, Yahoo! Finance, The Consumerist, Toronto Star, FLARE Magazine, Metro News, Sympatico.ca, CBC Radio One, and the Financial Post.

Content-wise, I specialize in the fundamentals of personal finance – financial issues that students face, saving, getting out of debt, budgeting, real estate, retirement, and traveling.
