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. His one doubt about this plan was whether it was actually feasible to do both simultaneously. 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.

“It’s almost as if someone heard me and put together a program that addressed all of my worries”.

Whilst Chris is on the Program he’ll be splitting his time between three projects: Mentoring students at an online design academy, continuing to learn front end web development, and designing his own app
