Digital Nomading: The Aftermath

I did it! I completed a month or so of being a digital nomad (though the definition of a digital nomad is for another blog post. Did I even count as one?). I spent four weeks in Porto, Portugal with a group called Hacker Paradise. While I have worked while traveling it in the past […]

Digital Nomading: Lessons from the First Week-ish   

I’m currently writing from the Hacker Paradise co-working space in Porto, Portugal, surrounded by hard-working entrepreneurs and programmers.

A Quest to Work from Abroad.

As I write this I am on a plane from Austin to New York. I’m not only headed there to see my family for Memorial Day – I’m also starting a little quest to work from abroad. For the next six weeks or so, I’m taking a hiatus from my home in Austin. After New […]

Just Go, Go, Go!

I have always been great at finagling my way into taking “cushy risks.” You know what I’m talking about – when it looks like you’re doing something crazy, but you really have your act tougher. Like when I moved from New York to Austin: I had a job lined up, plenty of savings and a […]

Taking a Leap of Faith.

Well, I did it. Earlier this year I went out on my own as a full-time freelance graphic designer. I left the comfort of a full-time job with fantastic perks for a world of uncertainty and risk – and you know what? It has been awesome. I had been debating making this move for months – […]
