A little backstory…

I was once a tubby 16 year old computer nerd who hacked websites and reverse engineered trial-software for fun (keygens, serial fishing, patches) and neglected my health and social life during that time. I always had a yearning for something challenging and fun, and I found it within computers, however, I also realized early on that there was more to life than a computer screen.. i.e. The world. I completed a degree in computer science by the age of 20 majoring in Games Development and Design and spent the following 4.5 years in the corporate world as web-developer.

Before then I worked many other jobs, retail, manual labour, kitchen-hand, earning next to nothing in the process.

I got into affiliate marketing after searching high and low for an industry where I could freely work from home, travel and make as much money as I desired, as opposed to being limited by a pay-packet / salary. I discovered affiliate marketing in 2009, had some pit-falls, gave up and restarted my mission in August 2011. I’m yet to look back!

I have since helped generate millions in revenue for advertisers in multiple verticals and have found a life that provides me with amazing amounts of freedom.

Through this, I decided to take advantage and travel the world while I’m still young and able.
I have visited several countries and cities but have A LOT more on my agenda to see.
