Becoming a digital nomad & freelance copywriter
Jamie was born in Canada and raised in the Netherlands. With a Canadian father and a Dutch mother, she grew up bilingual and this enables her to work with Dutch and English-speaking clients as both languages are her mother tongue.
Like many nomads, Jamie went to Bali for the holidays and this is where she started her digital nomad journey. Before that, she worked in a language school in Vietnam to teach English. She learned about freelance writing and decided to become a copywriter and translator. A friend showed her the robes and she took a course from Donald Miller to start her freelance career.
During her travels, Jamie became an enthusiastic surfer. After living in Asia for 4,5 years, she decided to chase the waves a bit closer to her home and landed in Ericeira, Portugal. It’s a small village an hour away from Lisbon and attracts a lot of digital nomads during the summer who are into surfing.
