Jordan Lavin

Jordan grew up on the coast of British Columbia, and moved to Toronto in 2004 to study radio and television at Ryerson University. After school, his part-time job at a local radio station quickly turned into a full-time marketing position at one of Canada's leading sports broadcasters. Jordan developed a passion for personal finance while buying his first house, and his obsession with online mortgage calculators led him to Ratehub.ca. When he's not at work, you'll find him at a campground, at a curling rink, or relaxing at home with his family.
