My name is Daria, 22 years old and I'm from Ukraine!

I just found out about people, who call theirself digital nomads few months ago during I lived on wonderful island - Bali. I love my work - past 4 years I am graphic web designer. Art always was my passion from childhood, I'm always falling in love in what I do, so I started draw and study over 10 years ago and then, I desided become web and graphic design to be able work and fall in love in my projects from anywhere. Also I work with my partner developer on our own project and hopefully we will finish soon, our goal is make internet better, perfect as it is possible from all sides! So Im so happy that I started traveling and meet people around world with common goals and interests. And I like it!

Some my hobbies: dance(mostly latin), calligraphy and lettering, snowboards and bikes

Nice to meet you all, and I hope to find friends here. So here I am!

Hello everyone, new blood here. My name is Micah and I'm 30 years old. Being unbound by where I live and being able to make a decent living while traveling was and still is a lifelong dream of mine. Long story short, I'm currently living in Japan and I've been teaching English here for close to 4 years now. As there is little opportunity for advancement, plus with the language gap making opportunities here very difficult and competitive to obtain, I've been trying to look into other sources of making income online besides just teaching English.

I've tried looking into many options, such as working as a technical trainer and working in QA testing, but when I tried calling companies in America about these positions, I get the responses that my timezone is difficult to work with, plus for someone going new into the field, they prefer training someone in person rather than being online. Techincal trainer positions seem to be hard to find too. And I don't exactly want to do online teaching, considering I've already started getting tired of it. My contract is finishing up next year at the end of February and I have to decide soon what I plan to do after that..I was hoping that this site could give me ideas on how to make a living on my own without having to teach English. If you need to, I can upload my resume and linkedin here, so you guys can help give me more suggestions on what to do.

Anyways, please feel free to help give me more ideas of what I can do to earn money as a digital nomad. I have a double bachelors in International Business and Finance and can also provide my resume or linkedin here if necessary.

My name is Ryan, 33 years old living in Texas as a helicopter pilot with my wife, 16 month old boy and 3 dogs. While full time nomad isn't really in the cards for us right now, we are looking to start taking more advantage of my week on/week off schedule and spend more time on the road during my off weeks.

We have rented an RV for two separate trips recently and have caught the bug for time on the road. Decided to join the forum to join the community and hopefully pick up some advice for future trips we are looking to take.

That's pretty much all for now,

Hi everyone, I'm Dimpesh, 24. Currently working with a travel startup where travelers from across the globe can come together share inspiring stories. I handle the Marketing and Strategy for this company.
After working for more than 1.8 years, I feel that the work will never end and I won't be able travel EVER.
I love traveling and making YouTube videos, but workload just doesn't allow me that to the extent that I want, I have no international stamps in my Passport yet. I wish if there's way I can change that.

Anyways, Thanks for listening and I would really appreciate any suggestions.
Dimpesh :)

Hi guys! I'm Taryn! I'm 22, living in Texas, and my boyfriend and I are finally working and saving for a van that we hope to call home for the next few years! We're still in a research phase but we're learning fast. We are obsessed with camping and outdoor everything, and I'm finally learning to hike (not awesome balance wise yet). I've always wanted to be a nomad and hope to teach around the world one day, but the idea finally got a jump after we took a trip to the redwoods where he went to college and I met a few. It was an awesome and eye opening experience. This already seems like a great community to be a part of and I'm excited to see what else I can learn while in the early stages of transitioning into this life!

Hello everyone,

My name is Joe, I'm 45 years old. I am an American & I am married to a Thai national who is an expert jeweler in Bangkok Thailand. I am a self taught graphic & web designer and have been working part time as a freelancer for a couple of years primarily as a web designers for friends and so forth. I completely enjoy my graphic & web design hobbies and am extremely interested in becoming a full time freelance digital entrepreneur, but it has been a real struggle to get things going as I am new to the digital marketing world. I joined this forum to network and learn from others with more experience than I have. I am planning on moving to Thailand in February 2018 and would really like to connect with other digital nomads. Thanks for reading my introduction. Peace

Hello, I am Milka, I live in Austria. Being a digital nomad has been in my mind for around 4 years. Now , I am still working 30 hours a week and would like to have a home office. (plus- to be able to always attend Kindergarten activities of my daughter)
I am thinking to work online, for companies on the other side of the world. Maybe around 12 hours different. Perhaps, I can fill in customer service job (or others) that required 24/7 service., while in the company's time zone is off hours.
Any advice of which company or which websites to search for is welcome. Thanks.

55 divorced male living on east coast USA. Grew bored 2016 and retired. After watching many nomad video's thought i would make a weak attempt at some short term nomad experiences. Have built out a van for what started as some weekend getaways. Now grown into some 7-10 day getaways. I don't think it ill become a way of life for me but I sure do enjoy the aimless meandering. I found this channel in my search for other east coast wanderers.
