Hi! Welcome to my blog.

Over here at Real Life Points I write about personal finance, investing, web programming, site design, travel hacking, photography, do-it-yourself projects, and just the occasional snippet of everyday life.

Currently I work, though a huge ambition of mine is to retire early with enough savings and investments to fund a life devoid of the traditional employer obligations. This stage is all about wealth-building.

A few years back I moved all the way from Texas up to the NYC area (hey Bayonne!), and still occasionally feel like a tourist—totally fine with me!

I enjoy long walks in the city, and when the season is just right and the leaves are beautiful shades of orange, yellow, red, and green I like to venture out and take pictures. The spring and fall are the perfect times to leisurely bicycle down countryside trails …

Thanks for stopping by Real Life Points!
