In another exciting episode of Rising Tide Startups, we get to chat with a startup founder that is truly hard to nail down. Meet Jarryd Salem, co-founder of NOMADasaurus. Explorer and anthropologist. Writer and teacher. Musician and artist. Philosopher and travel guide. These are all professions that Jarryd has very little skills and attributes in, but that doesn’t stop him from trying. His co-founder is his wife Alesha, who runs the creative side of their travel endeavour.
Born in Sydney, Australia, Jarryd was bitten hard by the travel bug early on in his life and at the age of 20 left his home to be a ski bum in Canada. 12 plus years later, he still wants to be a ski bum, but has instead substituted that life for one of discovering new, exciting places all over the world. With an all-encompassing passion for snow, mountain and water sports, and a love of travel and adventure, he endeavours to bring his enthusiasm for life to the far corners of the globe and inspire others to do the same. Jarryd runs the business side of things at NOMADasaurus and is the CEO of the digital marketing agency, Peak Evolution Media. He is also the chief editor for the site, and the author behind many of the stories you’ll find here.
