Hey there, I’m Mattias the head of content here at LocalNomads.com.

My digital journey began in 2018, a time when I was exploring different paths online. From trying my hand at dropshipping to crafting compelling copy for a fitness brand, and eventually diving into the worlds of SEO, domain flipping, and trading, it’s been quite the adventure.

One of my fondest memories? That first paycheck as a copywriter—it felt like a small victory, a glimpse into the vast possibilities that the digital world offers.

As more people seek alternatives to the traditional 9-to-5 grind, the internet has become a beacon of opportunity. Through LocalNomads, I hope to be a friendly guide for those looking to carve out their own path in the digital landscape, as well as sharing useful tips about the digital nomad world. 

Here at LocalNomads I want to share knowledge and help others embark on their digital journeys. My motivation? It’s all about spreading the word, lending a hand to fellow adventurers, and crafting a future that’s as fulfilling as it is flexible.

My journey has been a rollercoaster ride, filled with highs and lows. But through it all, I’ve learned that every peak and every valley has its purpose, shaping me into the resilient and determined individual I am today.

So, join me and my team in embracing the freedom of remote work, and let’s embark on this journey together. At LocalNomads, it’s all about chasing dreams, exploring new horizons, and living life on our own terms.

history of local nomads

Local Nomads was founded by Gabby and Adam, who have since retired from the digital nomad lifestyle. However, their journey began with a radical decision: selling all their possessions and teaching English in South Korea. 

Since then, they’ve embraced seasonal work across the US, from Oregon to Alaska, and the Rocky Mountains. Through their experiences, they’ve discovered the joy of both the journey and becoming a local wherever they roam.
