Scott Sherman

Scott Sherman, the writer behind I Dream of FIRE, is a late-30s husband and father with two college-age stepsons and a daughter just starting elementary school. He found the Financial Independence Retire Early (FIRE) community in 2014 and is now on a mission to show people they can take control of their finances and live the life they desire. He spent more than a decade as a newspaper journalist before moving to higher education information technology administration. In April 2018, the Michigan native who now calls Utah home left his job to begin a mini-retirement and recharge for his next career move – whatever that may be.
