Working remotely for over ten years as an employee, freelancer, and eventually a small business owner, Gildner has traveled and worked from over 45 countries. He started in photojournalism for NGOs, which took him from the deserts of northern India to the ebola units of Liberia, worked as a creative director for a luxury airfare company, and then cofounded Discosloth, a digital marketing agency with remote employees in both America and Europe. He is now settled down and works from Northwest Arkansas, where he can fiddle with things in the garage instead of working in his home office.
Gildner co-authored the Amazon best-selling Becoming A Digital Marketer with his wife, Anya Gildner. He has been featured in Inc Magazine, the New York Times, Arkansas Business, the Washington Post, and more. He blogs at www.discosloth.com.
