Edumadic Profiles: Meet Chris!
Chris is a 22 year old Canadian who’s spent the past 2 years working as a designer for a tech company in Silicon Valley after graduating from UC Santa Barbara.
Before hearing about Edumadic, Chris had already planned to quit his job and live the life of a backpacker / digital nomad for a year, working on a couple of projects and also learning some coding whilst travelling the world.

Having travelled before solely as a backpacker, he was aware that the environment he would find in hostels wouldn’t exactly be an ideal study / work environment.
Chris couldn’t believe his luck when he stumbled upon Edumadic.

- Mentoring students at an online design academy
- Continuing to learn front end web development
- Designing his own app
