Urban Hippie – Online Guru – Reggae Addict – Marketer
Elmer has a background in marketing and communication. After he graduated his Bachelor Degree in Online Marketing, he started working as a marketer for a health care company. “I really liked working for this company, because I was helping people in need. But still, I was missing something. I wanted to use my skills to create something bigger. I wanted to connect people.”
In the summer of 2016, Elmer and his girlfriend Henriette decided to quit their jobs, ended the lease of their apartment, sold all their belongings, closed their lifestyle shop in the center of Rotterdam and said goodbye to their friends and family. With no more than a filled backpack each, they started a trip around the world. They started their so called ‘Digital Nomad Lifestyle’, a nomadic way of living.
“Since I started my new nomadic lifestyle I feel very free. It’s great to be able to do what I love most, and that’s meeting other people and spirituality around the world. Ubuntu Wear is for me a project where I can combine my mindset with my marketing skills.
