Happy xmas and all that Super stoked to have found this little corner of the interwebs over the holiday. About a month ago, I decided that it was time to make nomadness a sustainable piece of my professional life, something that I haven't done up till now. Part of that was a product of what I was doing professionally (Wall St. lawyer), but I've pivoted to the world of startups, which opens doors significantly from the stuffy office bldg. So here I am, getting ready to hit the road ASAP.
what's your name?
Chris. Nice to meet y'all
where are you from?
Seattle born. Spent significant time along the U.S. west coast, NYC/DC corridor, Stockholm, Valparaiso, and Brussels, among some other spots here and there.
how long have you been away from home?
I'm decidedly less nomadic at the moment than I'd like, but such are the circumstances I'm in. Working to hit the road again soon.
what do you do?
Professionally, I've done a lot of cool stuff: Swedish professor at uni, news anchor, hostel receptionist, Wall Street defense lawyer, and now startup-er (Sales, growth, marketing, etc.)
I also play music, write, surf, ski, and of course, travel.
Language: Swedish, Spanish, passable Creole, shit French.
where are you currently?
Austin, Texas (10 months in, feeling a little restless )
where are you going?
I think SE Asia is next as far as extended living goes.
what has been memorable for you so far?
It's been a good ride. My nomadness has always been between jobs. 2016 is all about making my nomadness sustainable while working. Excited for this!
will you go home anytime soon?
Home now, so yeah...
what have you learnt during your time as a nomad?
Nomads = my tribe. Almost all of my best friends are people I met while hopping around the globe. I'm excited to get back on the road!
