About

Hi there! I’m Shawn and I’m a frequent traveler and tech junkie.

I’ve traveled all over the world, including fully around it once, so I have a lot of experience using VPNs and dealing with online privacy. From sitting in uncomfortable airport seating to zooming through the countryside on a high speed train, I’ve connected to VPNs pretty much everywhere….including a bathroom in the Barcelona train station.

All of that traveling also got me addicted to some shows that are geo-restricted in the USA (my home base), so I have a bit of experience using VPNs to get around those geo-blocking restrictions.

I’m also an accomplished ghostwriter, web designer, graphic designer, and general wearer of multiple hats online. And, I have a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and a MBA in Marketing and Finance. I know, not really the makings of a digital nomad tech junkie who does web design and graphic design, but it’s funny where life takes you sometimes.

And as you might have guessed, I’m also concerned about my online privacy and security whether I’m getting online from my own home or from a hotel halfway around the world.

If you take your online privacy and security as serious as I do, then I think you’ve come to the right place. Here I’ll be sharing my experiences and thoughts on staying secure and private out there on the interwebs.
