Bitcoin = Freedom

What Bitcoin represents.


The main reason I am into Bitcoin is because it represents freedom to me.  Around the mid 2000s I read the 4-Hour Workweek, by Tim Ferris, and Vagabonding, by Rolf Potts.  Taking some of the themes in those books to heart, I spent 2009-2011 traveling and working around the world.  That time spent traveling like I had already retired meant I wasn’t saving money for actual retirement.  I came back and spent some time in Austin and Los Angeles before ending up in Las Vegas where I have been teaching high school since 2015.  While teaching has been the most impactful career of the half-a-dozen things I’ve done, I am about ready to move on to something new.

The potential of Bitcoin to provide an opportunity to pursue the art, photography and other things I am interested in is exciting .  Time permitting, I have been lucky enough to hang onto some production work with the Emmy Awards and my photography, through events like South by Southwest.  Bitcoin has a chance to let me do more of that creative work without the real concern of paying for rent or healthcare.  Hopefully it can do the same for you.
