About

Thanks for stopping by my website. I am the Fire Fellow and I want to drive discussions and answer questions on those seeking FI/RE, the acronym for financial independence/retire early.

I discovered the concept of FI/RE about 3 years ago and I have been in pursuit of it ever since. I believe that true freedom is about being able to be financially self sustainable.

To tell you a bit about myself, I started off my career in the tech space, but about half way through, switched careers and entered the financial industry, where I still have a love-hate relationship with to this day.  My savings rate is 50% but I hope to increase that over the next several years. My FI target date can be found on this site.

On firefellow.com, I will be covering the various concepts of financial independence as well as discuss key challenges in reaching FI. I will also post reviews on tools and calculators regularly to help you find the resources you need. Finally, I will also review potential retirement destinations for those close to being FI/RE’ed.

Feel free to click Ask the Fellow to submit questions you have and I will do my best to answer them.
