Episode 27 - Nathaniel Wroblewski

"If you’re looking to optimize for your learning and growing never settle for something. Never be comfortable." - Nathaniel Wroblewski

Nathaniel Wroblewski and I used to be roommates back in San Francisco and we met during an intensive web development course called Dev Bootcamp.

After graduating college with a degrees in chemistry and mathematics, Nate quit his job, sold everything he owned, and left his friends and family behind to try his hand at computer programming. He says it’s the best decision he ever made. He now works remotely as a software engineer for a marketing analytics company called Kissmetrics and gets to travel the world. In 2016, he spent most of his time across 8 different countries. He’s an avid reader, he practices mixed martial arts and he’s also a keen sailor. He hopes sometime in the future to sail around the world.

We talk about prioritising happiness over safety, his life-changing MMA injury, almost dying at the Grand Canyon, living on a boat, a collaboration mindset, striving to never be comfortable and much more.
