About Sean Cooper

I’m a Toronto-based freelance personal finance writer and blogger. I have over five years’ experience in the financial industry with expertise in pensions, taxation and RESPs. I’m a proud first-time home buyer and landlord, living in one of Canada’s most expensive cities.

I’m very passionate about personal finance and business news and enjoy following them on a daily basis. I’m very goal-driven, whether it’s paying off student debt quickly or saving a large down payment for a house.

I’ve made several media appearances over the years, including being featured in the Toronto Star’s Moneyville Makeover, and discussing student debt on The Pattie Lovett-Reid Show.

I enjoy learning about new financial topics and sharing that knowledge to inspire others. I hope to instill the importance of living frugally and how it’s never too soon to start saving for retirement.
