Who are we?!

Dylan Johnston
Dylan is our rock. He's the reason we can do what we do. He works as a contract software developer and loves to build awesome stuff (check out his portfolio here.) Outside of his work he enjoys; family time, motorcycle riding and DIY projects like many kiwi guys.

Maria Johnston
Maria is an explorer. She's always had a love for seeing new places, learning languages and meeting people. She's passionate and creative, loves sports and always looks forward to growing and challenging herself to be a better person.

Maria has had great success as a project manager, entrepreneur, and of course being a mum! She's a hard worker and has impenetrable focus when her mind is set on something.

Lucas Johnston
Lucas is our little jock. He is 4 years old and has an undeniable love for inline hockey. He loves to play, go out to explore and has a contagiously happy laugh!

From a small town called Katikati to the Great Big World!

We met in the small town of Katikati, before moving to Hamilton where we completed our tertiary studies in IT and got industry jobs in software development and project management. 

We were fortunate to get an early start in life and experience all that tradition implies; wedding, houses, baby, business (check out Clevercare here) and "normal life". After an unfortunate dark period involving family, loss and all that ensues, we changed.

Life changed for us. Now here we are, doing something we thought was only reserved for the happily retired.We're not going to be able to plan what we'll do in the long term, you just don't know, but we can prepare ourselves, mentally, physically and financially to adapt. Change, if not at first, eventually is the greatest thing ever! 

So if you're reading this, nice to meet you! We would love for you to follow us by subscribing to our Instagram and Facebook as we journey and let us share with you all that we find along the way. You might just be inspired to change or enjoy the inspiration from the comfort of us going through it for you :)

Change in all things is sweet - Aristotle
