After a few years, I was tired of the politics, the two-weeks a year vacations and how I was welcome to use my creativity only within the tiny box of what I was asked.
I started multiple ventures inside the company as a way to feed the creative-entrepreneur living inside. I even spent 6 months in the business side of the company as a business analyst, hoping that would be the answer… the struggle was real.
In 2019 I took a leap of faith...
I finally built up the courage to admit that this urge could not be met by working for someone else. I quit, traveled for months and started my own creative business. Now I run my own art business, an online art gallery and a web design agency where I help artists navigate the online art selling space - all while traveling and maintaining a location independent lifestyle.
After quitting my job with no idea what would come next, I realized that life was about making opportunities out of situations instead of waiting for them—or someone else's permission—to happen. Today, this philosophy fuels me as one creative burst follows another: juggling web design projects while maintaining my own art practice and promoting emerging artists through my online art gallery, artterra, all while maintaining a location-independent lifestyle to travel.
I'm not big on labels but here are some I like:
I have a masters in systems design engineering.... think robots, cars, and other complex systems.
It took a loooong time to accept this one, but boy-o-boy it feels good.
I think of this one as where my engineering and artistic sides merge.
One of the most challenging and equally rewarding things I’ve ever done. After so many years of searching I finally feel I’m on the path I belong.
I've intentionally designed all my businesses to stay fully remote and I'm a firm believer of designing your business around the lifestyle of your dreams.
