George Mandis lives and works in Portland, Oregon, though he continually reminds himself that neither of those activities are particularly bound by geography. In 2013 he put this theory to a test, traveling and working remotely from 18+ countries all over the world. Read about it in this profile from 52ltd.
Many of those experiences have been used as jumping-off points for writing on this site. You can watch him give a presentation entitled A Year Like Any Other (Just Somewhere Else). at OMSI about this as part of Ignite Portland 13.
He works as a web developer and consultant for SnapTortoise and AppTortoise. It's a one-man shop dedicated to helping people turn their beautiful ideas into beautiful actualities via the internet.
spare time George likes creating things, solving and making — intentionally or otherwise — abstract problems, playing guitar like a banshee, consuming most things basketball, making guitar picks, coffee, pedal-powered transportation and generally finding ways to be an agreeable skeptic.
Thanks for reading.
