Pioneer Q & A
How did you start working remotely? Was it something you sought out or stumbled into?
Because I am a freelancer, I often work and research remotely including at my home office, the public library, and local coffee shops
Do you still work remotely?
Yes, and am doing so increasingly
What do you do for work and for fun?
For work I do graphics design, make short films, and take outdoor photographs. I love biking, going to concerts and playing video games.
What cities do you call “home” and why do you want to be a Workfrom ambassador?
I call Raleigh NC, and Durham NC home and I would love to see some of my favorite coffee shops organized for others to enjoy
How did you find out about Workfrom and why do you want to bring it to your area?
I found out about workfrom by a beta aggregator, it could have been betalist. I really want to help other people get out into the world, even my friends who work at their homes and less often out about in the world
Any tips you’d like to share for others wanting to or already working remotely?
I think maintaining rapport with business owners doesn’t take a lot of effort but goes a long way to being productive and enjoying your work; you can do this by making conversation and purchasing items throughout your visit
Any tips for those wanting to visit and work from your area?
I would say don’t settle for drab location, seek out an interesting atmosphere because they are out there.
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 you can filter by certain features. I think integrating with foursquare or yelp would be very helpful for users.
