About Me

I studied Computer and Electrical Engineering at the University of Florida, graduating in 2003. I worked as an electrical engineer for a few years before switching to project management and consulting. Later, I finished my MBA at the University of Florida in 2011.

I didn’t negotiate my salary at my first few jobs, but quickly realized I had left a lot of money on the table. I began negotiating and I doubled my salary in three years.

With the experience and confidence I gained from doubling my own salary, I began helping others drastically increase their salaries as well. You can read their stories on the Fearless Salary Negotiation testimonials page.

I took everything I learned from my own experience and helping others and wrote Fearless Salary Negotiation. Since I published the book at the end of 2015, I’ve helped many more people earn tens of thousands more dollars, and Fearless Salary Negotiation can help you too!

I live and work in Gainesville, FL, home of the University of Florida
