About Me


Kyle Landis-Marinello

Kyle Landis-Marinello lives in Vermont with his fantastic partner, three wonderful kids, and an amazing dog. He is a practicing attorney, specializing in environmental and energy law. He received a master’s degree in environmental law from Vermont Law School and a law degree from the University of Michigan, where even his free time was spent on study-related activities like being an editor of the Michigan Law Review. (This was before kids, so he didn’t know what else to do with his time.) When he turned his research skills toward personal finance and investing, he learned how to improve his family’s finances by $300,000 in one year. This did not come from being wealthy or from compromising his values. This $300,000 change came from receiving forgiveness of federal student loans, refinancing a home and private student loans, and other methods to make more, spend less, and invest wisely. His passions are family, friends, kayaking, frisbee, board games, comic books, and writing.
