My Most Recent Story

Six years ago, I decided that I wasn鈥檛 going to be pursuing a career in foreign affairs after all. Instead, I went traveling and started The Spin-Off Project鈥揳 lifestyle experiment that I designed to help me discover my passions.

The idea was simple. I would pick twelve things that I wanted to learn or do more, and then I would devote a year of my life to doing one each month.

In between traveling, setting up and dissembling online businesses, and learning to blog, a year became five, and it was only in August 2017 that I checked-off my last spin-off, number twelve, be a photographer.

Now, twelve lifestyles and five years later, I鈥檓 looking forward to spending the next five years writing and becoming a full-stack web developer. You can read a little more about it in the post聽“Hello, World!
