Our Story

Founder’s Message

Helping people manage their money and their student loans has long been a passion of mine. Before starting Student Loans Guy, I worked on helping Credit Karma members understand their student debt.

I started Student Loans Guy because there’s not enough being done to help people. It’s essential to know your repayment options, the importance of compound interest, and how refinancing can help.

I was lucky to escape my undergrad at West Virginia University without any student debt by staying in-state and earning scholarships. When I decided to pursue my MBA from University of California, Berkeley, I had to take on more than $40,000 in student debt. Although it made me uncomfortable, I knew it would be the right choice for my future. By planning wisely, I was able to eliminate this debt in just over two years. Unfortunately many others aren’t so lucky.
