She's an Architectural Designer and he's in Engineering. We're both a couple of years out of school.
We're an expat couple living on the West Coast of the U.S.A. originally from the Southern Hemisphere.
Call us the Mofi's.
Freedom to create. Freedom to craft. Freedom for fun!
We're both creative people with plenty of ideas. Often, the creativity train has to be put on ice due to the need to earn an income in our day-jobs. The pursuit of FI for us about having the freedom and flexibility to pursue our ideas while keeping fed and housed. We see it as more of a launch-pad for our future rather than an end-goal.
We found the wonderful FI community when looking for ways to create the ideal life we want.
Would we want to do them forever? No.
