A new start
David grew up in Brighton, England, but had been living and working as a journalist for five years in Australia when he came to the realisation that it was time to do something completely different. In 2006 he jetted off to travel through South East Asia, before settling in Vietnam to work as a freelance journalist.
12 years on, David is now based in Kep, Cambodia, where he enjoys a work/life balance most people only dream of. With improved technology and a changing job market, working remotely from anywhere in the world is only becoming easier.
But this story isn’t about David’s new way of living, it’s about how his travels steered him onto a path where he would make a real difference. So, let’s rewind the tape.
