Anthony Castrio has been a freelance engineer and digital nomad for 3.5 years. He currently living in Mexico City, but is originally from upstate New York, up around the Adirondack Mountains area. He describes where he grew up very similar to the shire from the Lord of the Rings. His hobbies include reading, tennis and languages. He’s learning Spanish, given his current location, but also has dabbled in Japanese and French.
As a freelance dev, he mostly is a full stack web developer. He’s been aggressively part time, or quarter time as he puts it, as a freelancer. He considers it the boots trappers seed round… it is how he keeps his runway infinite to work on his personal projects.
Before he built his current project, every time he would move to a new city, Anthony would try to start a local indie hackers meetup. He started one in Boston and DC, and a few other places – but every time he moved, he lost his friend group. In order to stay connected with his friends, he decided to take his groups virtual. And it started to grow from there.
