About Niall Doherty

Hi, I’m Niall.

Here I am drinking coffee…

Coffee in Las Palmas

A few things about me:

  • I was born in 1982 and raised in South Kilkenny in Ireland (near Waterford City).
  • From 2007-2010 I worked as a web designer for Loyola University New Orleans. I ended up there because my favorite NBA basketball team played in New Orleans and I wanted to see them play in person. I ended up creating a website about the team. That website became affiliated with ESPN. I got a media credential and was able to sit courtside and interview players and coaches in the locker room, living the bejesus out of my teenage dream.
  • In 2010 I came up with a new dream: to travel the world and earn a living online. I promptly quit my job and have been self-employed ever since.
  • Over the years I’ve worked as a freelance web developer, project manager, coach, writer, blogger, author, online course creator, YouTuber, affiliate marketer, public speaker, and virtual assistant.
  • For a 44-month stretch between 2011 and 2015, I traveled around the world without flying, visiting 37 countries and crossing three oceans on a complete circumnavigation of the globe. Read more about that adventure here.
  • I’ve written two books. Both of them have fairly good reviews.
  • I made this video, which went a bit viral…

  • I’ve been featured in and on a number of publications. Radio, newspapers, etc. You can see a list here.
  • Since January 2011 I’ve been tracking all my income and expenses and publishing monthly finance reports.
  • Since February 2013 I’ve been writing and publishing daily vignettes that I call Momentos.
  • You can reach me via himself[at]ndoherty.com, though I’d rather you leave a comment here on this site as I try to keep email to a minimum.
