I’ve left my plain and unfulfilling life in Europe behind and moved to the Philippines in late 2015. Doing away with what’s expected of me. I currently live in the Philippines and travel around regularly. Moving to a new place to explore from time to time – Until I find the perfect place. Ultimately I hope to invest in something new here. There are opportunities everywhere. I just have to find them and see what I can do with it!
Since moving to the Philippines and not settling down for a while I found that being a minimalist is useful. I guess that makes me a minimalist by choice. I don’t have a lot of stuff anymore. In a way that works very liberating. The few possessions I have are much more valuable and are carefully weighed if I should have them.
As a freelancer I create WordPress plugins, I’m a web-developer if you will. I speak PHP pretty much fluently. Sometimes I like to talk business with people and give advise, share ideas. I usually find a way to encourage and inspire other people. Possibly even motivate them to do something to better their lives. And there are plenty of people to inspire and motivate.
I’m a 30-something traveller who has ditched mainstream life. A jack-of-all-trades and entrepreneur of sorts. I still play the original Colonization a few times a month. Coming up with solutions and seeing chances is a thing I often do.
I’ve moved to the Philippines and am currently searching for my paradise. The goal is to create a more relaxed and fun lifestyle and enjoy life a bit more. It’s a blast trying to figure everything out and meeting new people. My biggest adventure yet.
I enjoy knowing that there are many thousands of people using something I’ve created. I’m the author of various popular plugins for WordPress including AdRotate for WordPress. I have several trademarks registered to my name.
I have a Apple laptop. Winter makes me sad. Lego is cool. Flip-flops are hip. Europe is a prison. I like internet things. Most of my belongings fit in 2 bags. Pineapple is awesome. A shy romantic. A sloppy perfectionist if that’s a thing.
