Fearlessly Playful

Episode 2

Marcus Holmes, the Nomadic Gentleman Technologist

Dr. Kate Raynes-Goldie published on

In this week’s episode, I talk to Marcus Holmes (Australia/UK/the World), gentleman technologist, digital nomad and former CEO of the Phnom Phen Post in Cambodia. Marcus shares how his playful disposition got him out of depression and into a life he loves. He shares how a playful approach has enabled him to keep  learning and growing beyond his comfort zone, which he says is key to staying happy especially as we get older. And of course being playful and taking risks is how he found himself saying yes to a role as head of a major newspaper, without any previous experience as a publisher or CEO. Then, when everything went really, really pear shaped, it was two skills from playing games that saw Marcus through to the other side: non attachment and being in the flow.
