I am a writer and author of Home at the Office: Working Remotely as a Way of Life (Atmosphere Press, September 2021), artist, musician, and gardener based in Alberta. I enjoy writing non-fiction and write on remote work, home offices, gardening, and more. I have a BFA in Painting & Drawing from Academy of Art University and an MA Communications in Public Relations from Southern New Hampshire University.
Throughout the years, I have worked several different work-from-home and remote jobs including: pet sitting, marketing assistant, and music instructor. I was inspired to start writing about working from home because I wanted to share the things I learned along the way. In addition, I wanted to let readers know that working remotely could provide them with more flexibility in their schedule and freedom in their life. For example, the time that would usually be used for a commute could instead be used for pursuing a hobby, exercising, or starting a home-based business.
As I wrote my book, I began to realize that I also wanted to inspire others by sharing the work experiences of other remote workers as well as the variety – in size, shape, color, decor, and more – found in home offices. This led me to include interviews with remote workers, located throughout North America, and photos of home office spaces.
What if I told you that working remotely can lead to increased freedom, flexibility, and independence in your life?
