Jody in a Nutshell
Hi! I’m Jody, originally from Edmonton Canada. As a kid, I loved computer graphics, learning about the world, and getting into trouble. As a young man, I often dreamt of traveling to faraway places … but always had excuses about “why I couldn’t.”
After my 36th Canadian winter, I rethought my life, purged my belongings and traveled through Latin America for 7 months. I met a girl on an island in the Caribbean, then we lived together in Germany, got married in Vegas, and moved to New Zealand. So far, we’ve visited 22 countries together.
In my past life I was a marketer, making pretty websites and videos for fancy clients like Warner Brothers, Intel and Megadeth. Today, I earn a living through my YouTube channel, sales of my digital products and project management for a video production studio based in Holland. In my free time I make goofy videos, write goofy music and sketch goofy artwork.
I’ve always felt a pull towards helping as many people as possible, and the comments on my YouTube videos give me an opportunity to better understand the kinds of challenges people are faced with. I am continually developing new content to help people improve their lives, and — sounds cheesy, but it’s true! — make the world a better place.
