After working as a creative in an ad agency, where he developed concepts for big brands and worked across a range of media, Robbie was ready for something new.

His work was fun and exciting, but it left him with no time for his own projects. And, while he admired those ahead of him in the industry, Robbie didn’t want to be them. He knew agency life wasn’t for him.

Robbie now works remotely, living in places like Thailand and Bali, where he’ll often spend the morning surfing before he starts work.

He chats to Steve about how and why he made the move, what life is like when you’re on the road, and how he makes freelancing work as a digital nomad.
