About



Hey I'm David. I’m a blue eyed, left handed American who works online and lives abroad (currently Saigon). I’m a native of Connecticut (go Pats) who’s been doing the digital nomad thing, expat lifestyle for the last few years.

I have a broad range of web skills ranging from SEO, to UX design and WordPress. I spend most of my time running my online business. I love to travel as a hobby and make regular, casual travel videos and you can check out.

Edge of David?

I got the idea for the name from a poem by Christopher Louge called come to the edge:

"Come to the edge. We might fall. Come to the edge. It’s too high! Come to the EDGE!

…and they came,and he pushed, and they flew."

So no, it’s not because my content is “edgy” or anything like that. I enjoyed the underlying meaning of this poem.

That there is no security in life beyond your ability to adapt and that you should actively look for that edge because that’s where the growth is, but also trouble too.

Welcome to my personal blog. Consider checking out my casual travel vlog too.

FAQ

I get asked the same 3 questions over and over. So I'll address them here:

How do you make money? 

Most who find my blog and vlog assume I'm an English teacher or that I'm a wanna-be broke travel YouTuber who's struggling. In reality I make money from my various web properties and YouTube channels through affiliate marketing, advertising and selling digital products. 

No it was not over night success. It took many years of consistent work (without making any money mind you), learning and adapting and quitting stuff that did not work. Fun fact, my first website I ever made back in 2009 was call Super Awesome Dating (yes that was the actual name - and yes it was a complete failure).

I also do freelance work (I'm a highly rated Fiverr seller) and I create online courses for my websites as well as Skillshare.

How old are you? 

I'm currently 37. No I'm really not a 20 year old kid. I don't say that because I personally think I look so young or anything, it's just that my YouTube viewers assume I'm way younger and less experience than I am. 

What camera do you use?

For my casual vlog channel I simply use my Sony FDR X3000. I have a whole write up on why I love it so much. It's not ideal if you're wanting to make films or professional tutorials style videos. But for a fun, casual channel like mine it's perfect.
