Live your adventure

I have always been in conflict with myself. I love the digital world, but I am my true self when I am out in nature. Since you are here, I bet you also have this internal conflict.

How do you create more space in your life so that you can go on the adventures that you crave?

My answer was freelancing. The freedom that it gave me allowed our family to do incredible things. We are location-independent, and our well-being is entirely controlled by us; that feeling is something that I never want to give up.

Climb the ladder!

You need to start on the first rung when you are just starting. You cant use step five until you have taken step one. I wrote an article about building your ladder rungs as a freelancer; you should check it out!

That is precisely why I started this website, to share what I have learned along the way so that you can have that feeling too.

A rising tide raises all boats.

You might be someone that is currently caught in the 9-5 and looking to escape. You could be a freelancer giving it all you got, but can not get past that client roller coaster.

I have been there, and I want to help you overcome these challenges because I know what is on the other side, and it is worth it.

Why you are here

We have probably never met, but I can guess why you are here. You are looking to move in a different direction, but are unsure where to start (or even where the starting line is).

You want to go against the grain a bit, and there is no map out there for that.

Over the years, I have learned that what works for someone else might not work for me.

But… You can use what others do to inform what will work for you.

By following in the footsteps of those just a little bit further ahead of me, I have started new chapters in my business and personal life with a 1,000 hr head start.

This website can be a leg up for you; please use it!

Come learn with me!

While I have been creating my own income streams for over 11 years now, I am still learning along the way. I am most fulfilled when sharing knowledge with others and helping them get past a speed bump that I have been over a few times.

About Chris

Ok, fine. I will tell you a little about me…

I am a full-time freelancing dad of 2 currently traveling the U.S.A. full time. When I am not designing or writing code I am usually laughing with my kids and wife, watching the Red Sox, or learning something new.

Getting outside in Pennsylvania with the family for the cliff hike.

I got my start in technology when I was 10 years old and took apart the family’s computer. Computers were my escape from the challenges I faced in my home life coming from divorced parents and having step-parents that never quite saw me for who I was.

I went to a technical high school where I got to learn more about the inner workings of the hardware behind a computer. From there, I went to Mass Maritime for 2 years as an environmental engineer major.

Then I dropped out and became a preschool teacher.

I went on to hold many different positions before returning back to the tech world. I was a local restaurant manager, landscaper, screen printer, and a manager of a Dunkin Donuts (this is actually where I met my wife).

From there I got back into the tech world, working for a company that provided digital forensics training and services to government agencies.

In 2012 I started to freelance and quickly became addicted. I quit my full-time job at the end of 2012 and started freelancing fulltime.

I never looked back.

Since making this move and creating more freedom, I have traveled the US, had 2 kids, moved 13 times, and built a successful freelance career.

I am so thankful for what freelancing has done for me, and I want that same independence for you!
