who is the ashman?

Ashley Cotter-Cairns

I’ve been self-employed for almost long enough to not remember the misery of working for someone else. Like most people, there are many aspects to me. I actively choose to pursue the many aspects of my personality — and to document those pursuits here. I’m not completely sure why I’m doing this, although I do have some nagging suspicions. It will probably become more clear to myself and to my audience as time goes on. I have a lot to say! And there are many people who ask me how I live the life I do.

On a walking tour in Italy. I do this and still make money all day long.
