Pioneer Q & A
How did you start working remotely? Was it something you sought out or stumbled into?
I’ve always been interested in the idea of digital nomads + living simply and being able to travel (originally started reading about it on Reddit). After my wife and I spent a month in Switzerland, I started hustling to make that dream a reality. I signed on to a new job this month that’s 100% remote and will give me the flexibility I’ve always wanted!
What do you do for work and for fun?
I’m a web developer for a dev shop out of Florida. Fun to me is the journey — new experiences, new food, new culture, new languages.
What cities do you call “home” and why do you want to be a Workfrom ambassador?
I love Greenville, SC and grew up here, but didn’t establish roots here until traveling across the US. I’d love to be an ambassador to onboard new workfrom’rs and create community here!
How did you find out about Workfrom and why do you want to bring it to your area?
I found Workfrom through a recommendation on Reddit. I was searching for coworking spaces/communities and there’s only a few options available in my city.
Any tips you’d like to share for others wanting to or already working remotely?
Find a good workspace, good wifi, and a schedule that you can keep consistently!
Any tips for those wanting to visit and work from your area?
Not yet, I’ll be doing my best to scout new locations
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 love the sharing of experiences — stories from around the world that connect at a global level, not just limited to a single geographical location.
