Welcome! This is a portfolio of my nomadic projects
The van: a photo tour of the old minibus that I converted into a mobile tiny house.
The lamps: lamps that I build out of scrap materials found during my travels. I make these in the mobile workshop at the back of the van.
The book: my latest project. It’s about helping ambitious young adults snap out of inaction and start improving the world.
Who’s writing this?
My name is Robin. I used to have an office life in London. Over time I realised that it wasn’t for me, and that I wanted my life to become a big adventure, with more purpose, more growth, more great encounters. So I bought a cheap old van on eBay. Soon after that, I quit my job, spent a year converting this vehicle into a tiny house, then I hit the road.
That was in 2017. Since then, I’ve lived in the van full time, earning money from short term contracts and freelance interior design. It’s a good life, but it doesn’t really help make the world a better place.
I meet too many young people who have great ideas to improve things, but these rarely evolve into real projects. The concept of disruption – and the potential impact a person can have on society – is not taught in most schools.
I’ve decided that writing a no-bullshit life advice book for them would be a good start, given the urgency of addressing the global challenges humanity is facing.
I’m currently on a one year van tour of Europe with my girlfriend. As it stands, my work hours are allocated to two projects: my mission (the book) and my hobby (making lamps). These two tick my boxes in terms of work satisfaction, though they have yet to bring in substantial amounts of money. If you think you and me could work together, let’s talk!
Enjoy your visit 🙂
