Full bio

I founded BiggerPockets.com because I felt that there weren't any sites in the real estate investing niche that I believe were credible at the time.  All were focused on upselling courses and bootcamps instead of focusing on educating the investor.  As an investor myself, I was looking for a place where I didn't need to succumb to this mindset and could turn to other investors for help, instead of relying on marketers.

Prior to BiggerPockets, I worked in the entertainment industry, held my real estate license in California, and have toyed around in other entrepreneurial ventures.
