About The Expat Experts And Thailand Mania

Scott (The Ultimate) Jones:



I was born in Fargo, North Dakota, but I takes pill for that. I’m a writer, composer, musician, comedian, photographer, founder of the nonprofit charity Give and Live, motorcyclist, Internet marketer, and human being, not necessarily in that order. I’ve released four albums of original music and comedy, performed in all 50 states in the USA, written humor columns for Chiang Mai Mail newspaper and the Chiang Mai Expats Club for years, and recently published my first book Life in the Laugh Lane: facts, fiction and photos from Asia to America.

In 2003 I started the nonprofit Give and Live, a tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) corporation and an official registered foundation in Thailand. We’ve raised and given millions of baht to children in need in Thailand, most recently in connection with the Chiang Mai ToyRide. I’m convinced I introduced thumb-wrestling to kids in Thailand.

Thailand became home in 2003 and I recently ran across Richard on the Internet, and discovered we live a couple miles apart. We have several things in common: 1) We love Thailand; 2) We enjoy working together since half of our brains are exactly the same, and half are completely different; 3) Together we continually have way too many ideas to act on; and 4) We both married a Thai woman. (Not the same one.)

Richard (The Explorer) Vader:

The Digital Nomad

The Digital Nomad

I was born a Dutchman in 1972, well, a Dutchbaby. Travel became my passion at a young age and I’ve been moving around my entire life. The miles took me to many countries where I’ve been a tour guide, tour manager, scuba diving instructor, yacht crew, web developer, Internet marketer, consultant and project manager. Currently I’m an Internet Marketing Consultant, Infopreneur, business owner of Asia Active and an active Digital Nomad. You probably won’t find “infopreneur” in the dictionary, but it’s on Wikipedia!”

Besides traveling in the real world and in cyberspace I enjoy helping more people to live the life of a Digital Nomad: exciting, life changing and full of grand experiences.

I enjoy meeting interesting people and engaging in intellectual discussion. I’d love to hear from you, so please drop me an email and introduce yourself.
