How did you start working remotely? Was it something you sought out or stumbled into?

Read the 4 hour work week when I was working a boring corporate job but dismissed it as a pipe dream. Then I took a sabbatical during which I briefly met someone on a boat party in the Philippines who I ended up running a company remotely with for a year and a half. We produced podcasts for some pretty high profile entrepreneurs like Tim Ferriss, Lewis Howes and Jonathan Fields.

What do you do for work and for fun?

Play piano and dance Salsa 🙂

What cities do you call “home” and why do you want to be a Workfrom ambassador?

New York! I love scouting out the best places to work from and connecting with other remote workers.

How did you find out about Workfrom and why do you want to bring it to your area?

Came across it on Nomad List I think. New York needs more awareness around coworking options!

Any tips you’d like to share for others wanting to or already working remotely?

Start a side hustle (copywriting, graphic design) and build a business outside of your 9 to 5.

Any tips for those wanting to visit and work from your area?

Network as much as you can. New York is where meetup was created so there is a huge Meetup culture here, something for everyone!

What do you like most about Workfrom, and what would you like to see above all else come from us in the next year?

Community!
