My mission is to enable distributed teams to cultivate a successful company culture to work better remotely.
I discovered remote work in 2014 when the trend of living as a digital nomad was rising rapidly. That’s when I decided that I wouldn’t restrict my life to working in the same location with a 9-to-5 job. To this day, I still believe that being location-independent allows us to engage in experiences that inspire us, both on a personal and professional level.
Over the years, I’ve researched Remote Design Thinking and shared my insights with the design community to help anyone be creative while free to choose the lifestyle they want. I started out as a UX designer at Hanno, a fully remote design team with no office—my teammates were spread across Europe and southeast Asia and only met online to get work done. Together, we helped startups, non-profits and enterprises launch digital products and services. We also launched the Remote Starter Kit to give everyone all the tools, processes and tips to kick off their remote work experience.
These days I split my time as Head of People Operations at MURAL, a digital whiteboard enabling virtual collaboration, and facilitating online workshops to transform the way organisations work. I’m also a founding member of the Remote Work Association where we learn and share how we can continue to promote location-independent jobs.
I coach and advise teams and organisations on remote work. If you‘d like to set up a distributed team or learn how to work better remotely, let’s chat!
