I make life easier for remote workers and manage software engineers in distributed startups
I'm a Canadian-based entrepreneur advocating work from anywhere. 🌎
Remote work profoundly reshapes our world, and I strive to help people make the most of it to live a fulfilling life aligned with their values.
I build products to ease the hurdles of location-independent workers
As an entrepreneur, I'm convinced remote work answers numerous issues our society holds today, and its potential for changes is far from being reached. My purpose is to assist individuals and families in solving the challenges that come with it:
- Aligning work according to any lifestyle.
- Helping people decide where they truly want to live.
- Increasing overall freedom and well-being.
- Distributing work to the countryside to revert rural exodus.
- Reuniting communities, friends, and families.
- Extending travelling options (children schooling is a side-challenge of it).
- Enabling digital nomadism to more people and for families.
- Significantly reduce the cost of living.
- Enjoying more time with people you love and combat loneliness.
- Building resilience to global instability.
I notably founded Meet Crew to reunite communities, fight loneliness, improve travelling, and support digital nomadism.
I also help distributed startups in leading software engineers
I additionally provide direction for software engineers in startups struggling with how work has to get done for the next decade:
- 8+ years in software engineering leadership.
- 6+ years in remote management for distributed teams.
My services are specialized for startups that desire to be decentralized—working remotely as an organization demands profound changes and new approaches to build software. The industry is changing, and I strive to help. Seize the momentum, accelerate, reach new markets, and build a fundamentally resilient organization that will last in the future of work era.

Why I advocate working from anywhere
I was uprooted from my support network, had trouble finding a place to call home for years, held financial ties that put my family in difficulty, and experienced several societal and economic crises. It led me to self-doubts and dilemmas. I tried to fit into the mould. I finally decided to create my own.
Many families and individuals struggle as I did. Organizations have difficulty adapting to the societal shift without adding increasing global instability and climate change to the pile.
It may sound bad, but it makes me hopeful. People can be very creative when exposed to uncertainty. Many significant civilization developments in history come from living in such a time—the changes we need to solve our challenges.
Remote work is not for everyone, as is entrepreneurship. But it saved my life by giving me the options I needed at the right time, and it can also be beneficial for you. It's time to rethink the way we work.
Let's continue the discussion on the future of work
My main communication channel is Twitter. I talk about remote work and I also publicly share my progress while building products, writing content, or any business thoughts and questions I'm asking myself; following the #buildinpublic movement.
