Hello! I'm Ian

I was born in Quebec City in Canada, and already at a very young age, I had dreams to discover the world. I imagined a life of endless travel, off the grid, out of the ordinary… In 2002 I designed a system to make it possible through online income. At the time it hadn't been seen before and that would make me one of the first digital nomads in the world.

Fast forward today, more than 15 years on the road, 194/196 countries visited and my dream to visit every country in the world is always appearing more realistic. I’ve circled the globe more than 6 times, boarded over 1000 airplanes and checked in over 5000 nights of booked rooms… My digital nomad lifestyle is now deeply encrusted in me and I proud myself every day to have inspired travelers around the world to grab their bag, and sail away!
