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, moved to New Zealand for 2 years, and now we live in The Netherlands. 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.
Are you having trouble sleeping? Here’s something I made to help you.
