This Week

Life Enjoying Berlin, meeting people and touristing. I have a friend visiting from Canada, which is great. Still - still - coughing like I have typhoid but mostly when I'm cold so I'm getting back into working out more. Although still no swimming - sadness. Met up with another man in tech for The Project (so far ...

Fifteen is for Freedom

Boule de cristal 2

A year before I left Google, I crafted an 18 month plan to set me up for what came next. 12 months into it, I realised I should stop waiting for the rest of my life to start and handed in my notice. I had many good experiences at Google, even if some... weren't so good. ...

Life Hanging out in Berlin! I've been meeting lots of lovely people and exploring - it's great. Still feeling under the weather but I've been making it to the gym, even if only for cardio! Starting to think about where I will go next, Montreal is pretty high on the list right now! Work Spent most of the week ...

Berlin, December 2014

IMG_7578

I came to Berlin for a few days in December to meet friends over from Australia. It was a pretty relaxed trip, as I knew I would be back in January for longer. There is a lot of great historical stuff to see in Berlin, but it can be quite confronting, so it can be ...

This Week

Life I packed up and moved to Berlin for a couple of months! Already I've hung out with some new and interesting people who live here, and had a visitor so that is great. Still coughing which is horrible, but finally made it to the gym again where I was a bit pathetic. But at least I ...

Working for Free

Tax Time

My strategy for painlessly saving a year of living costs: Have a well-paying corporate job. Live in a series of socialist countries. Neglect to file tax returns. File them all in a rush in the couple of months as you finalise your plans for leaving aforementioned corporate job. Cash the cheques as they arrive from various governments. OK, this strategy won't work for ...

Life Very boring! Been a bit under the weather with this cough that makes me sound like a typhoid patient. Before that, lots of time in the gym, family time including iPad screen protector application (we're pretty great at it now). Booked my flight for Berlin - I'm looking forward to living in a city again. Another Jawbone ...

2014 Review

Posting schedule from 2014

2014 has been interesting. 2013 kind of sucked. 2014 has been the year that I rebuilt, hopefully giving myself a solid foundation to thrive in 2015. I finally left my corporate job - something I started thinking about and planning for in 2013. Part of the plan was building my profile outside of a conglomerate, so I started ...

Dubai, December 2014

IMG_7475

Quick trip, just a miles run to make status for 2015. I stayed at the Sheraton Deira which was nice, beautiful rooftop pool that I swam in as planes landed overhead. Not much in Deira though, would have been better off across the river. Everyone drives everywhere (cabs are very cheap) but across the river I ...
