My Story

I’m born and raised in San Diego, CA and married with two young boys. I graduated from San Diego State University in 2001 with a major in Business and started my career as a CPA in public accounting. Over the last 18 years, I have held various accounting and finance senior level positions in both startup and large multinational public companies.

Last year I turned 40. I work a lot and don’t spend the amount of time I want to with my family and friends. So, I set a goal to retire from full time work at 55 and then work part time to spend more time enjoying life with family and friends.

I’m starting this blog to document everything I learn along the way. I will do my best to simplify personal finance topics and retirement strategies. It is possible to retire early and I’m confident you can too. If you are reading this, you have already taken the first step towards early retirement.

Now, let’s go build our perfect nest egg!
