About the Author
Michael Gutman is a marketing expert focused on the intersection of lifestyle, sustainability, and business. These interests collide in his position as director of marketing at FlexJobs, where he connects people and companies with the value of flexible work. Michael imagines a future where people are unchained from their desks and have the freedom to work wherever they want.
A former marketing manager in Silicon Valley, Michael changed his focus in 2008 to help propel the message of sustainability. He helped push the local sustainability movement forward in Mexico, Lake Tahoe, and San Francisco, and now he is helping the world reimagine a more flexible, sustainable way to work.
Prior to FlexJobs, Michael worked at Sqwiggle, a cloud-based office productivity application for connecting remote teams. He has been telecommuting since 2007, and his work flexibility allows him to spend a week out of the year as a snowboard instructor in Lake Tahoe, California. He is an avid traveler; however, you might find him working out of his Northern California home with his laptop in the backyard, as his goats and chickens say hello in the background.
