Me in 10 seconds (Inspired by Derek Sivers)
I’m a photographer, video maker, business founder, traveller and family man.
I love creating things from nothing; a photo, a video or a business.
I’ve been living out of hotels, predominantly in Asia, for 8 years.
I own very few physical items. The less I own, the happier I become.
My name is Chris, I’m 30 and I grew up in London. I build companies while I travel full time. I’ve been doing this for 8 years now, and I have no plans to stop.
I generally travel across Asia and more often than not in Thailand. It’s the people, food and the variety of scenery and experiences across this continent that make it hard for me to leave.
This blog is mostly about my travel experiences, films and photos… and acts as a kind of personal diary I can look back on. I also hope the blog inspires other people to travel too.
From here on I’ll answer question I’m frequently asked:
What companies do you own and work on?
I currently focus my energy on Founders Grid – A community dedicated to offshore, global and online business. We have over 500 members from 60 countries now, and this is where I network, discuss and learn about business every day.
How do you work and travel at the same time?
You need to have a lot of focus and determination. It’s also a lot easier if you are interested in what you are working on and can track growth easily (I prefer having a product with a price vs. business models relying on advertising, for example).
I try to work at least 5 hours every morning, usually from a good coffee shop or at a nice hotel lobby. During the afternoon I normally work from my hotel room in complete silence.
What are you favourite places to visit?
I’ll always keep going back to Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan and China. Each have a huge array of excellent food and the locals are extremely welcoming and friendly.
What is your least favourite place to visit?
Manila in the Philippines. It’s a shit-hole.
What camera do you use?
My camera body is a Canon 5D MKIII and use 50mm 1.2 and 24-105mm f/4 lenses.
Thanks for visiting,
P.S – If you have a question you feel I can help with, be sure to get in touch. I love hearing from visitors.
