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

I am a personal assistant with lots of down time. I left my desk job in Toronto for something more rewarding and stumbled into this position. Because I knew the dangers of letting your mind go stale, I started learning web development and UX design in my spare time. Now I’m a freelancer , as well as founder and contributing team member on a couple of startups.

Do you still work remotely?

Yup.

What do you do for work and for fun?

Personal Assistant / Creative Director / UX Designer. For fun I like to get out and explore the city for new places to photograph.

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

Toronto , Miami , New York , Nassau. I work remotely and think that having dedicated space and collaboration is what churns out great products.

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

Remember that habits usually take 21 days to form, keep at it. Try not to work solely from home. Get out and into places like Workfrom, you’ll get a zap of motivation as well as switch up your routine.

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 the collaborative vibe that Workfrom promotes
