Welcome to the Legal Nomads “Links I Loved” newsletter.
When I started a newsletter, I didn’t want it to be “me” centric. The blog is an update of its own, so instead these emails give a brief update about my travels and work, and focus on some of the best reading from the web.
I called the newsletter Links I Loved — the reason is obvious! — and it’s been wonderful to highlight thought provoking reading from around the web, beautiful photoessays, and quirky blog posts from people around the world.
A little about what I’ve got going on, before your next newsletter arrives:

A Little About Me:
For more about me, check out the About Page, but here’s the short version.
Originally from Montreal, I went to McGill law school because someone bet me I couldn’t get in at the young age of 18. They were wrong. Recruited to a big law firm in New York, I spent over 5 years working as an attorney. In 2008, I quit my job as a lawyer for what I thought would be a one-year trip around the world.
Many years later it is now my primary business and has led to a book about food, fun public speaking opportunities, and by lines in National Geographic, The Guardian, BBC and more. (See my Press Page here for links, if interested). The unexpected new career has also led to meeting readers and travellers around the world, and learning from them in the process.
