In the past 4 years, I've lived in Romania, India, Iceland, Thailand, New Zealand, Argentina, and several dozen other countries in between. I'm originally from California. I'm back in Iceland through the winter, and will head off to who-knows-where sometime early next year.
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.
