Starting in January 2016 I began a year of trading. That means me, my skills & time for the bare essentials (food, accommodation, travel), working with small businesses to do great things together. Let's see what happens when money is taken out of the equation.
Whatever the buzzword of the day is; do-er, self-starter, helpful-person, I pride myself on being the most useful I can be. Independent when needed, quick to learn when new to something and always making the most of what I have to work with. I am honoured that so many people have trusted me to help them in a small way with their dream projects. They probably can best describe how I work. My love of making, sharing (& eating) food has naturally started to take a bigger role in my trades..something I suspected might get sifted to the top as this journey has taken so many twists and turns but I couldn't have predicted the amount of different ways it has punctuated the last year.
Who will I be trading with? Anyone.
Where will I be trading? Anywhere.
What will I be trading? Anything.
My only rule is: The thing we work on together needs to have good at its core.

There is no fine print, this project will be defined by the people I work with and what we do together. I have ideas for how it could work but the best thing is to start with a conversation. So, if this has sparked something in your imagination then I would love to talk (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This trading project is gratefully inspired by Shantanu Starick and The Pixel Trade.
* I currently have some free time in each of these places, get in touch if you have an idea or know of someone you think I should work with.
