Google's Project Fi: The Digital Nomad's Cell Carrier

August 14, 2017

I've been using Google's Project Fi service for about 4 months now and it's one of those services that I wish I'd known earlier.

I first heard about this service when I was living in Bogota, Colombia earlier this year from another traveler. Currently, to sign up to the Project Fi service, you need to have a U.S. address. So when I visited family back in the U.S., I ...

Launching RemotePython.com: A job board and aggregator for remote Python jobs (and only remote Python jobs)

January 4, 2017

Since I'm always on the lookout for remote Python jobs anyway, I ...

Short stop in the US

September 13, 2016

I'm currently back in the US after being away for over a year. I plan to be home for only two weeks and then I'm off to Mexico, where I plan to spend the rest of the year.

It's funny how nothing really changed in that 1+ year period. Everything still looks and feels familiar. Even driving around feels so natural, despite the fact that I haven't driven a car since ...
