Media Appearances

"Stephen has a great understanding of personal finance and the innate ability to make even the most complex topics easily digestible."

—Ryan Feldman, Director of Public Relations,


As a personal finance speaker and writer, I appeared on Fox Business, ABC Morning News, and other national broadcasts.  I have also appeared on local and national radio programs and written or contributed to dozens of print articles as a subject matter expert.  I am comfortable discussing all topics related to personal finance and financial planning.
