Last week while on holiday in San Francisco I was invited to Idibon to give an inspirational talk on my life as a digital nomad. Idibon are a super cool startup specialising in NLP (natural language processing). This was one of my favourite topics when studying Computer Science at university, so I leapt at the chance to visit them!

My talk focussed on a bit of my back story and how I became a nomad. I then talked about some of the fun and crazy things to happen during the past year. Finally I wrapped up with some of my lessons learned and useful tips. I also tried to set straight some of the wrong impressions people have about digital nomads (e.g. we don’t all code from hammocks)! I showed quite a few of my photographs from my travel too.
