I started my first website in November 2007. All of my other websites are about real estate and I have always struggled with where I could share my other interests online. In 2011, I decided it was time for a travel blog and Future Expat was born. In the early days of 2012 I tweaked the format to make this blog more than just about travel. It now is the spot where I can share about the other things that are important in my life. Today, that lists include food, home decor and technology.
More About Me:
I’m the founder of Arch City Homes, a real estate team operating out of the Keller Williams Realty St. Louis brokerage. I head up all of the marketing for the real estate business, among other things, and am responsible for the website ArchCityHomes.com.
I’ve helped put on the RE BarCamp St. Louis tech conference. I have taught classes to real estate agents on using technology and marketing their business, and have been a presenter at local real estate industry events speaking on video, social media, blogging and technology.
Over the years, I have volunteered with many organizations. I currently volunteer with Sherwood Forest Camp, a non-profit residential summer camp serving low-income children located in Lesterville, MO. I also am a volunteer for the National Council of Jewish Women’s Resale Shop in St. Louis, merchandising the housewares department, posting craigslist ads and assisting with the store’s Facebook page.
I’ve lived my whole live (so far) in St. Louis, MO, with short stints in Columbia, MO and Houston, TX for college, plus the 3 summers in Lesterville, MO at Sherwood Forest’s camp a little over 20 years ago.
My dreams revolve around travel. I want to go everywhere. I want to live on an island or in a European village. I want to go on an African safari and float down the canals of Venice.
My trips so far have mostly been in the United States. Internationally, I have been to Israel, Costa Rica, England, several Caribbean islands, Canada, Belize and Mexico.
This blog is a first step toward making those dreams come true. Someday I hope to turn my social media, marketing and blogging skills into a business that let’s me live anywhere with an internet connection. I’m looking for opportunities to work with businesses and professionals who want to market their business online.
Advertising and sponsored posts are available on both this website and Arch City Homes.
