Hi, My name is Kalen and I’d love to write for you, or help you with design work. I do credited writing, ghost writing, web design, and graphic design.
I’m happily married with 5 children. I serve on active duty in the USAF, and I run 2 full-time blogs. That means good money and time management skills are mandatory.
I write on all things finance and productivity, and I specialize in:
- Children’s Finance
- Christian Finance
- Creating Positive Habits
- Military Finance
- Simple Investing
- Time Management
As far as design work, I specialize in a minimalist approach to:
- Blog layout, design, and graphics
- Landing and homepage design
- Small business website design
- Logo design
If you’re interested in design work, please contact me so we can discuss further. The rest of the page will focus on my writing.
Writing is important. Editing is more important. My words are concise and clear. I have a direct approach that many people like, and some don’t. If you need something said with few words and full meaning, I’m your guy.
I believe writing should be fun.
I aim to inform and entertain.
I get to the point and keep people engaged.
- Budgets Are Sexy

My Writing Process and How to Get a Quote
My writing process is simple. I do research in the beginning to become extremely familiar with the topic. Then I write my rough draft, and edit, edit, edit. During my editing process, I can add more sources and data to back up my claims. The finished, polished product is a concise, well-written piece with the research to hold it together.
I can give you a free quote based on word count, a per-project cost, or an ongoing relationship. I don’t write for free, but I’m also not trying to get rich. I love writing and I only ask for the funds to replace my time.
More of My Writing
I’ve written articles, guides, landing pages, books, and more.
Articles of All Sorts
I’ve had articles with over 75k social shares like this one on LifeHack. I have several high-ranking articles on Google, like this one about the lottery and this one on paying off your mortgage early. I’ve been writing articles long enough to know what people want, whether it be detailed, research-based, long-form content, or skimmable listicles
I’ve been writing copy for years. I like the basic advertising models, but I don’t always follow the rules. If you need a landing page or a product description, I can be pretty captivating. And my humility comes at no cost to you.
