Hi, I’m Jamie Cattanach. I’m a writer, reader, editor and experience junkie.
I spent over a year on staff at The Penny Hoarder, where I wrote about topics as diverse as tax refunds, travel hacking and finding the cheapest grocery store — or, you know, possibly eating roadkill instead. Hey, it’s free!
Nowadays, I’m a full-time freelancer loosely based in St. Augustine, Florida. (I travel a lot.)
My work can be found at Yahoo!, VinePair, Ms. Magazine, SELF, Roads & Kingdoms, BUST and elsewhere. I ghostwrite and blog for businesses like Barclaycard, RVshare and Santander Bank. I’ve been quoted in NBC News: BETTER and Student Loan Hero, and my essays and poems have been published at Nashville Review, Word Riot, DMQ Review, Hinchas de Poesia and Sweet: A Literary Confection. I also help tame the slush pile for the original fiction column at The Rumpus. You can see my full portfolio of digitally published work here.
My favorite topics to write about are travel, food and personal finance. In short, I’m invested in finding and sharing the best ways to spend less, see more and live well. My other interests are diverse, but include literature and linguistics, nutrition and fitness, dark chocolate and Randall Munroe.
I’d love to hear from — and work with! — you, so feel free to reach out and say hello.
