Pioneer Q & A
How did you start working remotely? Was it something you sought out or stumbled into?
I quit my job to pursue my passions, then quickly realised that full-time co-working spaces or offices are too expensive for ad-hoc working. I live where the rent is cheap (as is the internet quality) but I can’t get things done effectively from home.
Do you still work remotely?
What do you do for work and for fun?
By day I’m a software developer, by night I’m learning to play the drums.
What cities do you call “home” and why do you want to be a Workfrom ambassador?
Melbourne. I love the openness of the culture here. There are plenty of co-working spaces in Melbourne, but if I want to go somewhere and work for a few hours it’s near impossible to find somewhere with the right facilities.
How did you find out about Workfrom and why do you want to bring it to your area?
In my constant effort to find good working spaces I ran across Workfrom. I need it, like, today.
Any tips you’d like to share for others wanting to or already working remotely?
Find ONE place with good internet and coffee (or whatever your poison is) as a first priority. Just one. You can spend days trying to solve this problem.
Any tips for those wanting to visit and work from your area?
Checkout the co-working spaces if you need to sit down for 8 hours a day for a week (or more).
What do you like most about Workfrom, and what would you like to see above all else come from us in the next year?
I like that it’s focussed on being productive in shared spaces. Ideally I’d like to whip out my phone and find all spaces near me OR get push notifications when I pass one by.
