LorenHey there, I’m Loren, nice to make your acquaintance! I’ve gone by a few different names over the years, most notably Munchmo. I’m your average geek; I love computers, video games, and technology. For the past 20 years, I’ve lived a normal life, worked the 9-to-5 in IT, fixing other people’s problems and screw-ups.

The Big Change

A while back, things changed for me. In 2013 my father passed away. He left my brother and I with a bit of a mess. But along with the mess he left us an inheritance. With that, my brother and I bought a property management and villa rental business in Virgin Gorda.

In May 2018 I packed up my life, boarded a plane, and moved to Virgin Gorda to help grow the business! For nearly four years I worked by the beach on a beautiful island. Life there wasn’t always easy. The island is still recovering from the devastation that was Hurricane Irma, but the locals are always friendly and helpful.

A New Role

My job was completely different, instead of sitting at a desk waiting for the phone to ring, I was sitting in the kitchen of a beautiful villa, even though it still needed repairs! The work I did was much more rewarding and benefitted me directly. I split my time between the computer and the real world. At the computer I worked on the company website by creating meaningful content, analyzing site traffic, and improving our search rankings. I also managed our social media and advertisements. I was in full control of the business, paying all the bills and employees, tracking the company expenses, and reporting to the homeowners. When I wasn’t in the “office” I was running maids around, helping with villa repairs, and coordinating with guests.


Then came COVID-19. The island went on lockdown. First, they said one week. That became one month. All local businesses were shut down, the borders were closed. No one was allowed to leave their house for over a month. Even after those restrictions were lifted, the borders were closed for what felt like forever.

I did what I do best, I improvised. I kept the company running on a shoestring budget. And finally, when the borders opened, we were back in business. My brother was finally ready to move down to take over and I was free to do what I wanted.
