In the past 3 years, I've lived in Romania, India, Iceland, Thailand, New Zealand, and Argentina. I'm originally from California. I'm back in the US for 6 months or so, to focus on businessy things. Most of that time will be spent in Missoula, Montana.
I generally move around quite a bit - a new country every 4 months, based on the votes of my readers. More info about all that at ExileLifestyle.com, if you're interested.
I also run a branding studio, a small publishing company, and a few other businesses. I've written a handful of books — mostly narrative nonfiction about my travels and businessy books about my work, though I've recently tried my hand at speculative scifi. We'll see how that goes.
I have a degree in Graphic Design and one in Illustration.
I choose to live the way I do because I know that I have a very finite amount of time before I die, so I may as well have a great time while I'm here. The only tragedy is the unexplored, unexperienced life, and I fully intend to experience as much as possible.
I'm on here because I find it's a great place to make new friends while I travel. Sometimes those friendships turn into something more, but I have zero expectations beyond finding cool people to spend time with.
Also: I'll try anything once. Sometimes twice. Probably a lot more if I'm really into it.
Also also: I'm a phenomenal Tetris player and above-average yo-yoist. So keep that under your hat.
