I did the digital nomad thing for a couple of years, and hope to go back to being somewhat nomadic in the future

I built and lived in a van while I did a road trip from Canada to Mexico and back again

I even made my own recipe website

Making & DIY

I founded Dundee MakerSpace, former member of Makespace Madrid, and I've visited a few others on my travels.
