I’m Jay Cross, founder of The DIY Degree. I’m also a project manager for Column Five Media, a data visualization studio in Newport Beach. My career has been spent almost entirely in research and journalism, including:
  • Writing professionally for top brands like TurboTax, Mint, Billshrink, and Wisebread
  • Serving as editor of I Will Teach You To Be Rich, a personal finance blog with 300,000 readers/mo.
  • Brainstorming, researching, and managing infographics for Column Five’s business/technology clients (including Cisco and Intuit)
