My name is Andy Shuman, and I am a NYC-based freelancer writing for print and the web. I mostly write on two topics: Travel and Personal Finance. I am the author of three bestselling books, one of which, Use Frequent Flyer Miles to Travel the World FOR FREE made it to number one in Amazon Budget Travel section.
That’s a huge section. So, yeah, it was kind of a big deal.
My books, as well as dozens of my personal finance and travel articles are dedicated to one simple idea. Responsible credit habits, alone with creativity and reasonable organizational skills, not only can help with the bottom line, but they can also bring a lot of joy. How does a free vacation in French Polynesia sound? Or a free iPad, if travel is not your thing? Rather than making and carrying excruciating debt, you can profit–and profit greatly–from the same credit card products that often get people in trouble in the first place. It’s like a knife. Hold it the wrong way and you will hurt yourself. It doesn’t mean you have to.
I’m available for your assignments, or I could come up with some ideas of my own. Please let me know how I can help your blog, website, or your print publication.
You can find my resume and some clips here. I’m constantly updating and jazzing up this page, so it’s always under construction. Well, OK, maybe jazzing up is not the right expression.
