I'm a startup founder working full-time, remotely off-grid from a converted Land Rover Defender campervan that I built. Ask me anything!
Hey Reddit! About 2 months ago I began working full time from an old Land Rover Defender 110 that I converted into a rolling home/office. I was tired of London so upped sticks to live a simpler life on the road.
So far I have travelled all across the Alps, where 4G reception has given me consistently faster internet than anything I ever had in London (which is total madness). I average around 80mb/s each day compared to the pathetic 17mb/s I was getting back home.. Work that one out.. Here are my recent internet speeds
I'm the graphic designer for my startup Reedsy, we fully embrace the remote work culture and have people based all over the world.

I'm far from the first person to try #vanlife, and I find a lot of the hype somewhat staged... you never see the posts of people camped at Walmart, or the day the van breaks down, but I just wanted to show that living on the road is a feasible option for those of us who are lucky to work remotely.
Ask me Anything!
