Over the past decade, I've negotiated remote work arrangements, freelance client work and validated business ideas, in between living and working in Canada, Europe and Australia.
I've been working in flexible and remote work roles since 2014, spanning the business, technology, education, arts and creative industries, as both an employee and a freelancer/contractor working locally and across 10 hour+ time differences.
