As a location independent freelancer, I hope to combine my love of travel with a forward-thinking approach to traditional website development.
In 2009, I quit my job as a front-end web developer in Washington DC to spend a year traveling through New Zealand.
At first, I left the web world behind, eschewing the nine-to-five and bopping around Hobbit country, working sporadically on a free-range chicken and pig farm, a sailboat, a wine bottling factory, a pizzeria, and as a seasonal kiwifruit picker – and every minute I wasn’t working, I was exploring the lush green landscape and mountains of Fiordland National Park. I wrote about that experience here.
But as the year wrapped up, I felt the calling of my trade once again. I returned home to Pennsylvania and began building up my freelance business.
Now, I help people make websites…
… no matter where I am in the world. I’ve recently returned to my home state of Pennsylvania after an extended period of work/travel through Australia and New Zealand over Christmas 2013 and New Years 2014. Just prior to that, I spent a few months exploring Southeast Asia – Indonesia, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore. And before that, I spent a significant amount of time working from a few different places in Perú – from the ancient Incan city of Cusco to the chaotic but exciting capital of Lima – as well as the south of Chile, where the beautiful Patagonian landscapes were a constant distraction from my computer.
