If you know me well, you know I’ve got a decently weird story (at least I like to think so).
I’m a born and raised Arkansan, lover of outdoors, Medievalist and wannabe beer connoisseur. As far as work goes, I’m a social media manager and content developer. (This is how I’m able to travel and work at the same time). Now how I got to this place is a pretty windy road.
After finishing up two college degrees in English Literature and History (okay I got a minor in Medieval & Renaissance Studies, too), I decided to jump straight into graduate school because what else does a humanities major with zero plan do?
I considered getting my Master’s in Business, but where’s the fun in that? I went for the Master’s in Medieval Literature & Culture. Two years of graduate coursework, teaching, research and other shenanigans later, I’ve got another degree in my hand.
After a brief trip to Europe I thought: Hmm, now what? Well, I guess it’s time to join what adults call “the real world” (gulp).
And that’s exactly what I did. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great. I got a pretty good gig at a Fortune 500 company, and held that for a year. As fun as the job was, though, it would never be as fulfilling or enriching as the two weeks I spent in Europe.
So I decided to spend my year in the adult world learning and preparing to become location independent. It took a lot of work, time, mistakes and course-correcting, but I was finally able to set myself up as a freelancer who could take on the world.
And that’s what I’m doing now. In the past year I’ve taken a 3-month solo trip around Southeast Asia, thrown myself head first into my rock climbing, picked up an awesome gig with a local craft brewery, and have the time for regular adventures!
