13 Comments 08 January 2013

  Seven years ago the online world looked pretty different. It was seven years ago when I first started researching my crazy idea to take a career break and travel for a year.

19 Comments 27 November 2012

9 Comments 15 June 2010

When I was a kid I used to have a vivid imagination and would always beg people to play in my imaginary world.  I would play library, school teacher, office (my personal favorite); I think I was a natural builder of empires, whether they be books, homework, or filing.
