Professionally, I am an Online Business Startup Coach & Digital Product Launch Advisor, an experienced online marketer, writer, WordPress tinkerer and web developer, among many other things. I wear way too many hats, but my greatest skills are connecting incredibly creative people, advocating for new ideas, and building strong, engaged online communities around those ideas.
I'm proud to be a digital nomad and lifestyle designer – in 2007, I started my own web-based freelance business, developed client relationships on five continents, and in 2008 I decided to experiment with location independence, to move and live abroad, and continue to build and run my online business, location-independent from anywhere in the world. Originally from California, I've adopted a permanent traveler lifestyle and have now slow traveled around the world to over 28 countries, living and working on the islands of Koh Phangan and Bali, the beaches of Krabi, the big city metropolises of Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Saigon, in the mountains of Chiang Mai, then in the Philippines, and now Chile and South America… You can follow some of my adventures and entrepreneurial advice at Thrilling Heroics.
Now my passion is helping others design unconventional lifestyles for themselves and build remarkable businesses that allow them to incorporate adventure, travel, entrepreneurship, giving & fun into their lives! Currently I mentor and consult with over 250 virtual business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs inside Digital Nomad Academy, building new lifestyle business startups, creating new communities, and launching new products & resources.
In the past 6 years I've also helped develop South East Asia Backpacker Magazine, SovereignMan.com, ChrisDucker.com, Untemplater.com, In Search Of Sanuk, and been involved in running the Bangkok Tweetup and TEDx BKK—projects that have been featured by BBC Capital, FreelanceSwitch, Huffington Post, the New York Times, ABC News, Transitions Abroad, the Washington Post, CNN Travel and more.
