Alexandra started traveling the world at the age of 6 and visited over 20 countries before she turned 18. Thanks to these experiences, she developed a level of curiosity and passion for growth that made it clear: she needs to continue exploring.
Ever since, she has worked in many different areas, from teaching English to selling journals, but they all had one thing in common: helping people grow and explore, whether it's the world or themselves.
New to the nomad world, Rachel left her cozy life in Minneapolis, Minnesota to indulge in a life of slow travel, beginning her journey Chiang Mai just last year. A musician and graphic designer with a background in event planning and community outreach, Rachel is an enthusiastic addition to our Summit team!
Heather has been living abroad for the past 10 years, but only as a digital nomad for the past 1.5 years.
She was thrown into this lifestyle unexpectedly after being made redundant from her new job with a start-up in Dubai. She sold everything she owned and left her life Dubai with no plan and a one-way ticket to Bangkok!
What was supposed to be 'a few months' of travel and re-evaluating, turned into a year. After ending up in Chiang Mai early on, she quickly got the location independent bug.
She spent the next year learning, networking, trialling different business ideas to figure out how to make this lifestyle a reality for herself.
After trying 'all the things' she discovered she has a love of design and content curation. She now is focusing on this as her business.
Originally from San Francisco, Johnny moved to Thailand in 2008 to pursue Muay Thai Kickboxing and to travel while working as a Scuba Divemaster.
He's now traveling the world 11 months of the year while living out of carry on luggage.
