I started Location Rebel in May 2009, when I was in a job I was unhappy with and looking to make a change.
I started writing about my experience, and by October of 2009 I left my job having no idea what would come next.
Within a few weeks things started to happen. I was offered a position with Dan Andrews in a new internship called the “Tropical MBA.”
It was an experiment. What would happen if Dan brought a motivated dude out to Asia (me), payed for his basic living expenses, and taught him how to do online marketing.
Half the time he worked on the business, half the time he worked on his own projects.
This experiment led to the most transformative year of my life, and is literally the reason that now over a decade later I’m still working for myself.
Most of these posts are a decade + old. But if you want to learn about the origins of Location Rebel, my lifestyle business, and want a little motivation for taking action and making change – I think these posts are a great starting point.
These are all posts related to my time living in Thailand during 2010.
Left the red shirt protests in Bangkok, Thailand to spend time in Manila with the Tropical MBA and the island paradise of Puerto Galera.

On April 10, 2010 I found myself dead in the middle of the Thailand red shirt political protests during the time when things turned ugly. Here is what happened.

Last October, I quit my job as a financial analyst to pursue an adventure. I began living in southeast Asia to have an adventure and build a business.
Is it arrogant to pursue something different when it comes to lifestyle design? I moved to Bangkok, Thailand to become location independent and experience something new. Others don't agree with that choice.
Working for yourself from home can be difficult. This article explores the virtues of finding a better environment to achieve maximum productivity.
Bangkok, Thailand can be a very cheap place to spend time, however it can also be extremely expensive if you aren't careful.
Is there a difference between online relationships and real world relationships? I don't think so.
Living in Thailand for the past three weeks has taught me a great deal about the culture. Here is what I have learned about living in Thailand.
Thinking about going location independent and becoming a digital nomad? The grass isn't always greener, see why in this post.
Koh Phi Phi, Thailand is one of the most beautiful islands in Thailand. But I wouldn't expect to be very productive while you're there. Click to see why.
I wrote this weeks after quitting my job and moving to Thailand. Music can have a profound impact during transition periods in life.
The Ayutthaya ancient ruins outside Bangkok, feature some of the most impressive temples and ruins in all of Thailand. It's a must visit on a tirp to Bangkok.
Within a week of arriving in Bangkok, I was treated to my first Thai massage. It was...awkward. Here's what to expect when you get one.
I am spending 6 months working and traveling through Thailand. Here is my thailand packing list
If you have a chance to do something amazing with your life, DO IT! I still can't believe I ever worked up the guts to be at a point to write this post.
It finally hits me that in less than a month, I will be moving to Thailand.
After months of debate I sold my car in preparation to move to Bangkok, Thailand.
